Looking for a list of must-see Christmas light displays?! We’ve got a list for you!
One idea to make this sightseeing adventure even more fun, is to go in style via the Mini-Van Express, an idea sent my way via FFK contributor Sarah Patton that she found on the blog, Confessions of a Homeschooler. Print out Golden Tickets for your children to find at bedtime that invites them aboard the Mini-Van Express to see Christmas lights while enjoying a snack. The link even includes a download for printing the tickets!
Thanks so much to all of you who contributed to this article! Did we miss a great light show? Let us know and we’ll add it to the list!
