It’s officially mid-December. For some the holiday rush is as real as the 20 degree temperatures outside! While others may have prepared months in advance. Whether you’re feeling the frenzy of a long “to do” list or wrapping presents under mistletoe, one of the best parts of Christmas are the lights. Looking at lights can calm the frenzy and slow things down.
The best part about lights is you can enjoy them with only a few minutes or a few hours. Below are some ways to see the lights around St. Louis this December. Of course, our favorite is seeing the lights on so many homes. So bundle up, grab a your favorite cozy drink and check out one of these light displays.
