Do you have a neighbor that goes all out with their Christmas decorations? Does your town decorate the streets and storefronts? Whether you go by car or on foot, feel the excitement of the season by taking your family on a tour of your community's holiday decorations!

Really get into the holiday spirit by bringing some hot cocoa to drink while you go on your tour. If you want to make your own hot cocoa mix you can find a great recipe  here!

Have you ever gone with your family to tour your community's decorations? Do you have any neighbors that are over the top?

 Yes, we drive different neighborhoods to look at the Christmas Decorations/Displays. Our Neighbors don't go over the top, but some areas we go to are simply amazing with their decor.

We do look at lights.  This year is great because the HOA is doing a contest so  ALOT of people are going all out.

We haven't, in the past, made it a point to tour our town's holiday decorations.  But we will this year.  I put it as an activity in the Advent calendar I did for my boys.  So hopefully, whatever day I put it in, it works to do it then!

Our Little town has a tree lighting event. Where everyone comes to watch the tree being lit and sing christmas carols, and visit with Santa. Then we ride on a horse drawn trolley to go around town and see the houses lit up for the holidays.

There is an over the top house in my neighborhood.  They decorate their entire long circular driveway and allow families to drive through to view their display.

We ALWAYS make it tradition to go watch our community or nearby to watch the christmas lights on the houses and street lights! I love the Christmas lights..it is so magical to me! :)
