The ONE Christmas Tradition We Love

Clark Griswold says it best, “250 strands of lights.  100 individual bulbs per strand.  For a grand total of 25,000 imported Italian twinkle lights.

Driving around to look at Christmas light displays is our favorite family tradition.  We load up the car every Sunday night in December to check out the lights near us.  We include popcorn, Christmas music and this year we added hot cocoa.

We could channel our inner Clark Griswold and put on our own display, but our neighbors do a wonderful job.


A couple of houses, like the one above, set their lights to music.  I feel like a creeper just sitting there watching the lights.  They really are entertaining.

As we prepare for Christmas tomorrow I can’t wait to drive around and scope lights.

Do you drive around and look at lights?

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year’s to you.
