  • yep, we do it every year. When DS was a baby baby driving would put him to sleep so we'd drive around look at lights and wait for him to pass out and every year we just kept doing it. He loves it now!

  • Yes. My husband says our neighborhood has Christmas lights competition. So It's always nice to see everyone elses lights.

  • I do but many of my neighbors have their houses professionally decorated and we are just regular folks. Ours is okay but theirs are elegant and perfect.

  • No one in my family is interested in it so I just walk around the block in the evenings and look at the lights that way.

    Answer by zboys at 8:53 PM on Dec. 22, 2010

  • Yes, my kids love seeing all the lights!

  • Yes. We like to see what our neighbors have done. Our house is more simple. We are probably one of the few who did't hire someone to climb our trees to decorate them.

  • Yes, it's a tradition that my parents started when I was born. We'd drive all over town looking at the decorations on the night of the 23rd. Now my DF & I take our DD out to see them, just like when I was little. We have also kept other traditions- we still gather with my dad's side of the family for a big dinner on Christmas Eve, & we all go to the church service together.

  • Yes! The kids love it! We live in a town that REALLY "decks the halls!" :o) We're expecting a big snowstorm on Sunday/Monday, so it'll be fun to take a walk at night and look at all of the pretty lights against the snow.
