You’ve heard the saying that everything is big in Texas, and that couldn’t be more truthful than when it comes to Christmas lights and holiday displays. We love our decorating here in the Lone Star State, and if we can’t put a ribbon, bow, light, or something shiny on it, you can bet we’ll find a way. There are a few excellent public places that you need to take the time to see, given the opportunity, and here’s just a glimpse of some of the coolest places in Texas to find Christmas lights.
