Christmas lights add such a magical (and literal) sparkle and twinkle to the holiday season. They can really help the season feel so festival, especially when they're set up in cool displays. Yes, Christmas lights on a house are cool and all, but if you want to see some larger, more intricate displays, you need to go somewhere else.

If you want to check out the Christmas lights, there are a few displays in the greater Lansing area that are going on right now! This is a great chance to take the kids and do something fun while they're on winter break! See where you can find these Christmas light displays, below!
