Christmas Traditions: Light Show

Last year, Christmas just wasn't the same. We were home for the holidays, of course, but I feel like we missed out on a lot of the excitement of the season being in Louisiana. It's just different down there. Christmas is a time for cold, snow, hot cocoa, tree trimming, and lights!

Oh, the lights!

People in Baton Rouge just don't decorate their homes like people in Chicago. At least not from what we saw.

The house in this video is about 30 minutes away from us (in the middle of nowhere). I am not ashamed to tell you that we've made the trip 3 times already this year, as it's one of our favorite Christmas Traditions.

The Larsen Family goes above and beyond, creating a spectacular lights display, set to music, that I swear rivals the Mannheim Steamroller concert I saw with my cousin 10 years ago.

The line gets pretty long, as I'm sure you can imagine, but the last time we went to the show, we were able to park right in front of the house! And this year, they're doing TWO shows on alternating nights... so you know we have to go back to see the other set.

Are there any homes in your area with impressive light displays like this?
