Del Ray Holiday Card Lane Display To Be Held

Residents can once again see giant-sized holiday cards as part of a continuing tradition in Del Ray. The Holiday Card Lane is a collaborative effort of neighbors on East Luray Avenue to display oversized holiday cards in their front yards. Most of the displays are on East Luray Avenue between Mount Vernon Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue, resident Wendy Moniz told Patch in an email. But this year, more houses are participating, including on East Alexandria Avenue and beyond. Many houses will pair holiday music with their display, and caroling is planned for Dec. 16 at 6 p.m. According to, "The displays are expected to be ready for visitors on Sunday, Dec. 5, just in time for the Del Ray Tree and Menorah Lighting at 6 p.m. at Mount Vernon and Oxford Avenues. The Del Ray Artisans will also hold a Fine Art & Fine Craft Holiday Market from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Holiday Card Lane has been a tradition since 2014 and gained national media attention from USA Today and the Washington Post last year. Rebecca VanZoeren, one resident on East Luray Avenue, was inspired by the Christmas Card Lane growing up in Kalamazoo, Michigan and wanted to recreate it in Del Ray."
