One of my favorite things to do is take a drive on a cold wintery night only a few days before Christmas to find the best Christmas lights in the area with my husband and children. One thing I always do is make sure that I set my home alarm (website) before I leave so that no one will steal my gifts!
I always stop and get a big cup of hot chocolate and then search for the best neighborhoods in the area. Typically, the nicer neighborhoods have the best Christmas decorations and light show. My favorite place to go is the place that has the lights synced with Christmas music. They have Christmas music broadcasted over a special radio station and the lights flash and flicker along to the beats of the music. It truly is a spectacular sight to see and my kids are amazed at how the lights move along to the music. I also enjoy lit up houses minus the music because I know a lot of work was put into it. I plan on carrying this tradition on until my children are grown and I hope they enjoy it just as much as I do.
