I love Christmas lights and when I was a kid, every Christmas Eve we would drive out the to my Aunt's house to celebrate with them. On the trip back we'd stop off in some of the famous neighborhoods in Southern California to see the Christmas lights. Even now I go out looking for Christmas lights this time of the year. It is much harder to do in a rural area but there are some neighborhoods that do a great job.
Should you be in Southern California at Christmas time, I highly recommend looking up the areas that have the light displays and driving out to see them.
