    If you’re looking for something to do this Christmas Eve, consider heading out to see some of the spectacular holiday light displays all around the Bay Area.

    On Cherry Avenue in San Jose, the “Make-A-Wish House” offers a photo-op with Mr. and Mrs. Claus in exchange for a donation. All the money raised goes to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. Last year the light show raised $24,000.

    And, in the East Bay, it’s Mr. Christmas’s last hurrah. Bruce Mertz has hung extravagant Christmas lights at his Concord home for the past 36 years, but due to health issues, this year’s display will be his last. His home is on Olive Drive, not far from Kirker Pass Road.

    This is the 36th year of light displays at 5208 Olive Drive in Concord.
