Have you looked around the neighborhood lately? It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Yes, it’s glistening once again (to steal some Christmas carol lyrics). Neighborhoods are all aglow. It really is beautiful strolling around the streets of our towns. But where are the best Christmas lights displays?

It’s not “The Great Christmas Light Fight,” but I’m sure there is some competition among neighbors. I find inspiration in looking around my town. Some people are all white lights, some are aglow with color, others are all about the blow-up animated Christmas characters. Most of us are content with a string of lights and a wreath. We like to leave it to the semi-pro “lighters.” Santa may have a naughty and nice list, but we just have a very nice list of neighborhoods, businesses and communities in New England that will really light up our spirits and holidays.

So, flip the switch and let’s put the spotlight on some popular favorites. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

  • Lilah Lane Christmas Lights in Pembroke, MA

    Lilah Lane in Pembroke

    This South Shore light display is is kind of a big deal. I mean, when your neighborhood has it’s own Facebook page, AND your own radio station to play music for the revelers, it’s a big deal. Apparently, it’s big enough to get a aerial photo.
