Maybe it’s the warmth of the lights set to the contrast of the cold days of the season. Perhaps Christmas lights out on the streets are just an extension of the tree in our living rooms carefully covering our Christmas presents. Or, for those of us in the design world, maybe they inspire us in our own festive creations of holiday postcards, website ads, or festive brushes. Whatever the reason, we are drawn to the streets and parks and neighborhoods with beautiful displays of Christmas lights.
This collection is a roundup of over-the-top Christmas decorations and beautiful public scenes where communities have fully embraced the Christmas season. Whether you just need a break or are looking for a background for your Christmas designs, sit back and enjoy this celebration of the season.
