At last, we’ve reached December. The month we commence stringing up everything we can with twinkling holiday lights and decorating with candy canes, reindeer, Santa and elves. The young child in all of us remembers the excitement and magic of the red and green glow of nighttime in December. The enthusiasm for exterior lighting in our area is overwhelming with residential and commercial lights. Load up the family station wagon and take a tour of the local lights this month. Here is where to see Christmas lights in Skagit County.
