    I'm taking the family, soon's it's dark, and then we'll drive around for an hour or so and come back to the house and have some hot chocolate.

    Do any of you really go to town decorating your own houses?? Started a thread asking this but only Ted responded. Don't shatter my illusions of American houses at Christmas, i want to hear who's got a house we could see from space!!!
    Decorating and lighting up outside is only just starting to catch on here, but there are more and more people joining in every year. I personally have difficulty in passing by a shop that sells fairy lights, and now have a string in every socket in the house
    I just love them!!

    Around here we have a Christmas lights competition, and there are also houses that give x-mas light tours.....
    But the best of all is this house WAAAYYYYYY out in the country... in the middle of nowhere....and this little old lady lives there all by herself.... but you should see the way this old doll decorates her house, yard, outhouse, doghouse....her whole property looks like a fairytale village that you can see from miles away. You can drive through her property...and at the other end of the driveway on your way out there is a donation box so that people can donate money to help pay her hydrobill. The snow, the lights, Its just magical! I've taken all of my friends there....and they now take their families there too. I'll take pics and post them this year!

    I couldn't possibly live in Las Vegas without going crazy on Christmas lights. It would just be so... unVegas-like to do so.

    I guess I'm a young fogie then renerian! We always make a night of it...the local zoo always has a huge display throughout the entire park. Very cool!

    I used to do this with my parents a few years ago! I think I'm going to make it a tradition with my boyfriend to go look at them. Maybe I'll even invite my parents along.....maybe.........

    Good Idea!!

    When I'm driving home at night I usually look around to see what I can see.

    We ALWAYS go looking. There is a state park here that decorates with 1/2 million lights. I'll post the pics here....... Then I'll post pics of my house next week after hubby decorates. He does a great job and is usually done by now but is away at school for another week.

    We always make a point to drive around diffrent neighborhoods during the Xmas season to check out the light displays!

    We just got finished putting up the lights around the house today.... I also purchased one of the 8 feet inflatable snowman and put that on the front lawn too!

    I didn't do as many light this year as I have done in the past... we started too late!

    There is a big competition in our town for who has the best light display so some people really go to town with their displays!
