Cockermouth started the festive fun with a Christmas extravaganza on 18 November. You could tell Santa what you wanted for Christmas and be dazzled at the lights when they were switched on.
But the fun continues. Don't forget about Taste Cumbria Christmas on 8-9 December for all your festive foodie gifts and tasty treats.
Keswick's lights are focused on Market Square where stalls and attractions welcomed the switching on of the town's lights. With its lakeland location, if there is snow on the hills, Keswick can feel truly Alpine, and you'll certainly get into the Christmas spirit.
On 2 December the town celebrated the Victorian Christmas Fayre and the town has its very own live advent calendar, where a different shop puts on a festive-themed window in the count-down to the big day. The Santa-boat race on Derwent Water is always a draw, and this year happened on 3 December this year.
All eyes turned to the lovely coastal town of Maryport on 24 November, who always put on a great show. Take a leisurely autumnal walk along the prom before admiring the lights around the town.
Not to be outdone, Wigton also puts on a great show. Do some Christmas shopping in the local shops before admiring the lights as darkness falls.
We head back to the coast to the Victorian splendour of Silloth. A true community affair, the Christmas lights in Silloth light up the central streets bringing festive cheer to the town. The big switch-on was on 30 November so get up to Silloth to see them in their glory.
Workington is the biggest town and the main shopping destination in Allerdale so the perfect place to do some shopping under the fantastic Christmas lights.
There's free parking from 4pm-8pm at the town's multi-story car park on late-night shopping nights - 6, 13 and 20 of December. So there's no need to rush to get your perfect present.
It may be smaller than the other towns, but Aspatria won't be outdone by its larger cousins when it comes to Christmas lights. The locals all got together on 2 December to watch the lights go on.
