I watched one of my favorite Christmas movies this past weekend, Christmas Vacation. It reminded me of how much I LOVE to drive around and see Christmas lights with my kids. When we were in Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving, we got to see this house which was in my parent's neighborhood.
It was amazing to see in person! Where are the best neighborhoods to see Christmas lights in Roanoke? Please leave a comment and let us know! And, if it's YOUR house, do tell so we can all come and see them!
