Christmas Lights on the Cheap

A nice way to have some family time during the Christmas season is to drive or walk around the neighborhood together to look at Christmas lights. Bundle up and go after 6 p.m. when most folks have come home and turned on their displays. We’ve been going out once or twice a week since Thanksgiving. Every time there are more lights around and we know the best streets to drive down and see the biggest displays. Some cities have ‘Christmas Light Lanes’ where just about every house is lit up. Sometimes these streets have fees or donation requests, so check before you go. This can be a learning opportunity for your toddler as well with On/Off and Colors.
