Lights! Lights! Lights!

video

Week before the week of Christmas...here we go!! We headed out on Friday late afternoon to see some Christmas lights. If you're looking for some good amateur displays, I highly recommend the following:
  • 7400 block of Sherwood Forest Drive, Charlotte, 28226
  • 4019 Lake Charles Way, Indian Trail, 28079 (see video above)
  • 10732 Honeynut Drive, Charlotte, 28277
Sure do wish I had the energy and the passion these folks have. My neighbors would hate me, I'm sure, but my kids loved every minute of our outing!!! Do you know of other houses or neighborhoods to visit? Send the address to queencitybuzz@gmail.com, and we'll post your suggestions on our Facebook Page.

Blessings,
The Buzz
