Thousands of people all over the world decorate for Christmas. Lots of people like to share their heart at Christmas by adding outdoor-decorations to the front of their homes and businesses.
Do you like to decorate or drive by and look...or both? With your help we can compile a list of Seasonal drive by's so you can share your heart or have it warmed by others. This will be a list by State or Country and when enough addresses are available in a City or Town I will "map" the locations for each. Share your heart with the world.
Everyone has their own unique way of decorating. Some just put up Christmas Lights. These could be icicle lights, C9’s(the traditional large), the C7’s(the middle size) or the Mini Lights called fairy lights or if your are from Chicago - Italian Lights.
Over a period of time, strings of Christmas lights found their way into use in places other than Christmas trees. Soon, strings of lights adorned mantles and doorways inside homes, and ran along the rafters, roof lines, and porch railings of homes and businesses. In recent times, many city skyscrapers are decorated with long mostly-vertical strings of a common theme, and are activated simultaneously in Grand Illumination.

Christmas light sculptures are light sculptures used as Christmas decorations and for other holidays. Originally, these were large wire frame metalwork pieces made for public displays, such as for a municipal government to place on utility poles, and shopping centers to place on lampposts. Since the 1990s, these are also made in small plastic home versions that can be hung in a window, or on a door or wall. Attached to them are strings of Christmas lights, typically the large C7 screw-in bulbs for outdoor types, and miniature lights for indoor ones.
A company that would have a tremendous impact on Christmas Outdoor-Decorations for a decade was the Poloron Corporation of New Rochelle, New York. It had a number of different products, including thermos jugs and coolers. In the early 1960s, Poloron began diversifying into lighted outdoor decorations with assorted holiday figures, and in 1967 made its first attempt at bringing Santa and his Reindeer to life by
creating the blow mold.
