Best Christmas Light Displays

One of our favorite things to do every Christmas season is to put the kids in the car with some hot cocoa and drive around looking at the pretty Christmas lights! One place to try and visit every year is in Bridgewater. It's called the Bridgewater Festival of Lights. You can visit this great display at 55 Alexander Drive in Bridgewater, just off Rt. 18. They are open every night until Christmas from 5-10pm unless there is rain or heavy snow. The great part about this display is that you can get out and walk through it! Oh and it's FREE. Yes, free...they ask that you please make a donation if you can. Definitely a must see!

What are some other *must see* Christmas light displays in your area? Leave a comment and let us know!
