Lights fantastic

From Baltimore to Ocean City, you can find the holiday spirit burning bright at these elaborate displays.

December 03, 2005

Is there any time of year when we don't decorate to excess any more? From Valentine's Day to Easter to the Fourth of July to Halloween and Thanksgiving, lights, inflatable objects and other ornaments now appear in yards, malls and public spaces everywhere. By the time the Christmas season rolls around, it's possible to suffer from decoration fatigue.

Still, displays the rest of the year pale in comparison to the sort you see during the winter holidays. Maybe it's because the December landscape is so dark and barren otherwise. Or that the tradition rekindles so many warm memories. Whatever the reason, whether you like your lights tasteful or tacky, sublime or over-the-top, traditional or way outside the box, there's surely a display out there to brighten your day.
