#DEArTour – 7 Christmas Light Show Events this Holiday Season

Christmas light displays have always been a favorite part of the holiday season for me.
My parents would take me from time to time to see light displays and decorations around Christmas in neighborhoods apart of my hometown and home state when I was younger and that’s where my fascination came from with them. To me, being able to strategically put up Christmas lights and displays is an art to me. Everyone can’t do it, but when it’s done right Christmas lights are a beautiful sight to see during the winter season each year.
