(Christmas) Lights over Charlotte...

A Very Miller Christmas - 2014
I love, and I mean LOVE Christmas lights. I don't like to put a lot on my house (no time for that), but I absolutely love to get in the car at dusk with the Christmas music playing and head out to see "the lights". The professional displays are awesome for sure, but I really love going to individual homes, streets or neighborhoods, where individuals have poured their heart, soul and time into creating something for us all to enjoy this season. These are a few of my favorites:

      Lake Park Lights (Indian Trail) - More info...
      A Very Miller Christmas (off Colony Road) - More info...
      Hillside Hunger Holiday Drive Through More info...

For more great local light displays, follow Rose's Christmas Light Tour Stops on Facebook...she knows them all!! More info...

Have a wonderful, happy and BRIGHT week!!

Blessings,
The Buzz
