We’ve been on the prowl for the great Christmas light videos of 2015 — where are they? It’s been pretty light this year, no pun intended. Here’s one but there’s little information to share with you about who did it or where it is from. It has only been on…

Johnson Light Show Fires Up in San Antonio

The Johnson Family Christmas Lights are pretty famous. They were a hit in San Antonio long before being featured on the Great Christmas Light Fight. This display likes to bill itself as “non-traditional” and right away it smacks the viewer as something very different. They explain: There are no inflatables,…


Lights and Trees Go On Everywhere
