Find Christmas Sights at Sites That Feature the Holiday Lights

Article excerpt

I have fond childhood memories of my family decorating our home with Christmas lights for the holiday season. We never had the fanciest light display in town, but that was just fine with us. We enjoyed driving around our community to ooh and ah at the festive, brightly-lighted homes of those who went that extra decorating mile for our enjoyment. I still like to drive my car around town to view Christmas lights, but it's also fun to sit down at the computer and check out creative light displays from all over the country. In my opinion, these are some of the best Christmas light sites on the Web. Merry Christmas!

Clot Family Christmas

For more than three decades the Clot Family of Pinecrest has been dazzling residents of the southern portion of our state with its annual Christmas light display. The 400,000 lights and 100 animated figures just beats out my home's string of icicle lights. Take a tour of the colorful spectacle and read all the details about the display. The Clot family will give out 60,000 candy canes to children this year and they've raised more than $250,000 for the Woman's Cancer Center at the University of Miami over the past 10 years. By the way, their seasonal celebrity status costs the Clots $4,000 per month for their electric bill.

Christmas Lights in Central Texas

The folks in Central Texas sure take their Christmas light displays seriously. It's a breeze to get around this site, which presents more than 150 thumbnail photos of Christmas light displays from Austin and surrounding areas. Browse through displays of the Nativity, Texas state flag, tunnels of lights, Santa and his reindeer, the Wise Men and several other creative efforts. I especially enjoyed the photos entitled "Marble Falls Reflected in a Lake" and "The Johnson City Courthouse."
