Twinkling Lights Make Everything Bright

Last night, our family hung our Christmas lights in the front of our house. Since each of the kids grabbed a kind of lights and then chose a bush or tree to decorate, you can bet our front yard is eclectic. But that’s half the fun!

Coming together, having fun, bringing our own spark and personality to our home and our neighborhood is such a special part of the holiday season.

It’s like the ultimately socially-distanced wave from one household to another.

Where are the best places, neighborhoods, and streets for driving through to look at Christmas lights? 

If you know of a great one (or more!), would you comment or email us to tell us about your favorite place to see Christmas lights in Jackson County? We’re going to put together a list to spread a little Christmas cheer this year.
