For those interested less in the shopping and more in the glow of the holiday season, here's more on where and when to see Christmas tree lights.

For those interested less in the shopping and more in the glow of the holiday season, here's more on where and when to see Christmas tree lights.

It’s not even December yet, but already the switch has been thrown on Christmas tree lights at the old Globe Plaza in Balboa Park, Viejas Casino in Alpine and the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

For those wanting to get a head start on the warm feeling of holiday lights, Julian will launch its Country Christmas this weekend with carols, Santa and a tree illumination on Saturday, closely followed by Legoland which lights up its 30-foot brick-built tree on Monday.

When December begins, lights come on all over San Diego. Oceanside powers up next Thursday to coincide with its Seaside Market, and on Friday, December Nights begins in Balboa Park. By Saturday December 5rd, the Christmas spirit is playing out all over San Diego, with tree ceremonies and parades from Chula Vista, to Ocean Beach, La Jolla and Ramona.

The San Diego Botanical Gardens in Encinitas will wait until December 10th to launch its Garden of Lights.

This year many communities are touting their energy-efficient LED lights which, they say, burn even brighter than the traditional kind.
