The best Christmas displays and traditions.

Christmas lights have a history that dates all the way back to the pagan rituals of northern Europe. The custom of the Yule Log, a bonfire of sorts, was first recorded in the 12th century, and is thought to have served representation of hope that the sun would once again shine brightly, ending the darkness of December. Throughout the years, the winter light tradition changed forms from the early Yule Log to candles on the German Christmas tree—perhaps the most flammable iteration—to the LED version of holiday cheer we have today. .If you are traveling and want to check out the holiday lights during the season, here the best Christmas light displays in every state. 

One of the places I love to visit during the holidays in South Florida is Hoffman's Chocolate Winter Wonderland.  Featuring more than 125,000 LED lights, captivating holiday displays, a giant Christmas tree, live entertainment, and photo opportunities with Santa and Mrs. Claus, Winter Wonderland will be open nightly, November 18 through December 30, from 6 p.m. - 10 p.m. and is FREE to the public.

Did you ever wonder what the real reason Christmas lights are green and red? Well now you can read all about the colors of Christmas!

There's far more to Christmas than shopping and wrapping presents to put under the tree. For those who want to get out and explore, there are cities and towns in every state that truly know how to celebrate the season, rolling out over-the-top lighting displays, sleigh rides, holiday concerts, festivals, carolers, boat parades, and more.

If you love parades, then check out where you can go to see the 10 World's Best Christmas Parades.

My favorite Boat Parade in South Florida can be seen up close on my fun YouTube channel

The true meaning of Christmas is love so share the festivities, beauty and joy the season brings with family and friends!
