"Look at those red and green ones!", "Mom, it's Santa's sleigh!" and "Dad, those lights are flashing!" -- are just some of the squeals you'll hear your kids make when you drive around your neighborhood to see all of the holiday displays. Pick a day close to Christmas, bundle up the kids in your car, along with festive cookies or snacks and music (Chipmunks Christmas album, anyone?), and have your kids vote on which house has the best decorations. Top off the adventure with some hot chocolate when you get home.
