The awesome thing about larger Christmas light displays is that you don't have to in squeeze a visit to your favorite place before the holiday, since most places keep their lights up for nearly two weeks beyond the holiday.
You might visit a large location where multiple families participate in the display, or you might visit a paid display at a botanical garden, or you might have a list of those favorite neighborhood houses that are must-sees. Whatever your route looks like, here's a tracker to help you remember your favorites and keep your trip organized.
On this printable, you'll be listing off your favorite displays, assigning a rating to each and making some notes about your yearly route. You'll also track items you need to pack in the car. When we hit the road to look at lights, hot cocoa is mandatory as is Christmas music, comfy clothes and a snack. When the kids were younger, they would wear their jammies and we would pack blankets and pillows too, just in case they fell asleep.
I took another trip around to see some of my favorite houses of the year last night. You can see them on my Instagram story for the next few hours!
