Decorating with lights for Christmas, has expanded far beyond the family Christmas tree in the living room. The displays range from the truly sloppy and tacky, to absolute beautiful works of art. It is really a lot of fun to pack the family in the car, and drive around your community to look at the holiday displays…the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Finding a Light Tour in Your Area
Most local newspapers, and news programs, will publish a list of Christmas light shows or tours in your area.

TackyLightTour.com is probably the most comprehensive of the sites I found. This site has a great map tool that shows where all of the big holiday light displays are in your area.
