This season's families were chosen through an extensive nationwide search, based on their previous elaborate Christmas light displays, incredible choreography and over-the-top designs. On season final week:
"Episode 206" (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) - Everything's bigger in Texas, especially when it comes to the Thames family's display in Midland, which showcases their larger than life, homemade display featuring enormous poinsettias and a "flame shooting" sleigh! In Davie, FL, the Hammel family specifically bought their home because the front yard is large enough to accommodate a sea of Christmas decorations and even an outdoor movie theater. Down in Clayton, NC, the Fuller family's attention to detail is hard to miss -- just follow the shooting star to the orchestra of trees! In Windsor, CA, the Mortensen family transforms their home into the world's largest gingerbread house, complete with a personalized cast of cookie-themed characters and an over-the-top, holiday Cuckoo Clock.

Dover, FL, is home to "Christmas Lane," a magical holiday midway outfitted with everything from a skating rink to a "teddy-go-round," thanks to the hard work of the Wetherington family. Finally, after 26 years of wowing visitors from near and far, the Setti family in Norwalk, CT assembles their fantastical, hand-crafted Christmas village one final time before retiring their display for good, but the community won't let them go quietly -- on ABC's "The Great Christmas Light Fight."
