I have seen too many to count over the years but I thought I would share the following with you on this 6th day of the 12 Days Blogmas Challenge.
Glittering Lights at Las Vegas Motor Speedway - This annual event held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, is in its 17th year and benefits the Speedway Children's Charity. With over 3 million LED lights, this drive-thru Christmas light display is quite amazing. If you prefer, you can book a spot on the open air Santa tram, sit back and enjoy the show. There is also a living Nativity on certain nights in December, as a community project by area churches. It's a lot of fun.

Here's a video of last year's run in Alberta (it was so cold I thought my fingers would freeze onto my phone while taking it!)
Boulder City Parade and the House on 5th Street - Another moving light display, Santa's Electric Night Parade in Boulder City Nevada is a fun event with a lot of community involvement. The city also boasts the home of the 2016 winners of ABC's "The Great Christmas Light Fight" (I don't have a good photo but check out the link for a video from 13 Action News)

Upper Canada Village - My last entry is also at a museum, this time the living history, Upper Canada Village. We were fortunate to attend one of their Alight at Night events with a group of coworkers and had a fantastic evening. There are carolers, lights, refreshments, wagon rides, and (if you are well dressed and can stand the cold) miniature train rides along the St. Lawrence River. If you are ever in the area, this park is well worth the visit.
These are just a few of the spots we have enjoyed during the holiday season. Of course, a person doesn't need to travel to find Christmas lights since most communities have displays and many have parades as well. Visiting the lights and enjoying a Christmas treat with friends and family is a great way to take some time to relax during the hectic holiday season.
