Top 10 Christmas Lights 2010

One of our annual family traditions is to drive around the neighborhood and enjoy the Christmas lights.
Most of our neighbors have turned off their Christmas lights because of the weather. Since the area
is nearly a blackout this week, a techie girl needs to go online and find her favorite light shows from around
the world.

Here are my favorite Top 10 Christmas Lights 2010:

#1: Holiday Road • Spring Lake Michigan

#2: Bishop Riley Way, Churchlands

#3: Orchard Road, Singapore

#4: Tega Cay, South Carolina

#5: University of Dayton, Dayton, Ohio

#6: Round Rock, Texas

#7: Austin, Texas

#8: Perth, Western Australia

#9: New York City, New York

#10: San Diego, California

What’s your favorite video? Do you have other captivating Christmas light videos to share?
