Christmas lights are an art that very few households can perfect. Some households do a half-assed job and throw up some red and green lights on the roof and turn on the switch. Others take months preparing for their light show, and when it goes live, people from all over town clog the cul-de-sac just to see thousands of eye-burning lights and a mechanical Santa Claus.
Since you can pretty much watch anything on YouTube, you no longer have to freeze your butt off again just to find the most awesome holiday light shows in the city. Watch these seven elaborate light shows I’ve compiled from YouTube — they do Christmas light show art justice by adding a modern twist to traditional decorations.
