Many years ago, my nephew and I started our own holiday tradition—touring St. Louis homes aglow with gorgeous Christmas light displays. Sure, we know, we didn’t start this tradition, it’s just something we enjoy doing together. Through the years we've discovered some very inspiring Christmas displays, but we knew there were more, we just didn't know where, and we also knew other people shared the same frustration.

 

That's when we got the idea to create a home Christmas lights display locator website featuring all the homes in the area we thought were worth the drive, give a brief description, location, along with a photo. The idea took off and we now have lots of homeowners participating who have allowed us to showcase their homes on our site.

 

Now we're spreading the word to all St. Louisans eager for a little holiday spirit and inspiration, and for those who simply want to have a fun night out cruising St. Louis neighborhoods enjoying the beautiful Christmas lights that add sparkle and warmth to a cold winter’s night. It’s great fun to pack the kids into the car—or friends, family and grandma—along with a thermos of hot chocolate and candy canes, and spend special time together during the holiday season. Maybe even make a surprise stop at Ted Drewes.

 

Enjoy! Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad and Happy New Year!
