Among the many holiday traditions this time of year; cutting down the Christmas tree, visiting Santa Claus and baking cookies, visiting Christmas light displays is often at the top of the list. There is something about displays of twinkling and magical dancing lights that brighten up the dark winter nights and put kids of all ages into the Christmas spirit.
