Now that Thanksgiving is behind us we are truly in the full-on holiday season. A great way to jump into the festive spirit is by viewing the various magical Christmas light displays in the state of Alabama.

One of my fondest memories of my childhood was getting the car with my parents and driving around looking at Christmas lights. We would go to all types of neighborhoods to check out their displays. There was actually one a couple of blocks from my house. It was amazing. In my mind, every inch was covered in a light. I often wonder if they are still put on a display.
