In PEOPLE’s exclusive first look of The Great Christmas Light Fight's upcoming eighth season (above), which premieres on Dec. 9, the competition series takes viewers on a tour of the most creative and over-the-top holiday displays across the country.

The trailer promises “a ride full of surprises” while giving fans a brief glimpse into some of the wild and whimsical creations judges Taniya Nayak and Carter Oosterhouse will be visiting.

"This is adorable!” Nayak, a celebrity interior designer and HGTV alum, says in response to one festive design, while Oosterhouse muses of a particularly impressive motorized creation: "That is a big boy!”
