When I was growing up, we lived on a Christmas Light street. That meant that every house was required to decorate their house and that the street would be closed to cars each evening so people could stroll up and down and enjoy the lights. I always loved putting up lights with my dad. One year our house even made it on the front page of the newspaper!
Another favorite Christmas tradition I had was driving around looking at lights on Christmas Eve. It was always impossible to sleep on those nights so my dad would drive around until I fell asleep. There is something so comforting about Christmas lights and music.
Last year Nate would drive me around to look at lights during December. He took me to all of these fun streets in Orem and Provo. This year we were talking about doing a contest by driving around to all of the local houses to see who has the best lights... but I think we already found our winners.

If you want to visit either of these, you can go here and here for directions and information.
When you visit the houses, you tune your radio into 99.9 and it plays the song for the light show. It's amazing!
