Mike and Karen Jones' CDC Christmas House at 1095 Pigeon Avenue.

Remember the CDC Christmas House

It might just be one of those Christmas houses people like to say they can see from space.

It might just be one of those Christmas houses people like to say they can see from space.

That would be the super decorations on Mike and Karen Jones’ home at 1095 Pigeon Avenue that is lit up for Christmas featuring all sorts of interesting decorations and characters to raise funds for the Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre.

Mike and Karen are taking over the role of CDC Christmas House in the city from Ken Berry who did fundraising for the CDC for many years with his elaborate Christmas displays at his home on Country Club Boulevard but moved to the Okanagan earlier this year.

The Jones had a large Christmas decoration collection of their own and added more characters to it earlier this year when they bought some of the display items from the Berrys including the birdhouse donation box where people can place their donations for the CDC.

Despite unseasonably warm weather there are lots of beautiful displays around the city to see this holiday season.

The Berrys have moved to the Okanagan but are hoping that people will continue to support the CDC with donations.
