It came from my Mother years ago, when on a cold winter's eve we bundled up in the car and drove off wide-eyed into the darkness looking for the most extravagant Christmas light displays we could find.
Now you,too, can follow this family fun tradition without having to leave the comfort of your own home with the Tacky Light Tour. Featuring, and I quote: 44,644,320 lights; 3,170 inflatables; and 466,711 animated scenes. Now that's something even Clark Griswald would be proud of.
Besides Tacky Lights, visitors can also view (and upload their own photos) of Christmas Pets in full attire, Christmas Cubicles (for those enjoying holiday festivities at work), and my horror of all horrors, those tacky Christmas Sweaters.
Tacky Light Tour allows visitors to watch videos, see the latest uploaded photos, and view the most popular tacky lights. And before you drive off into the cold of the night, plan your route by searching your zip code or postal code to find the tackiest light shows near you.
For more information or to see the Tacky Lights for yourself, visit Tacky Light Tour.
