I guess you could say I'm a little like Buddy the Elf, I love Christmas! All things Christmas. Decorating, baking, shopping, family, gathering, Christmas lights, Christmas carols, I mean need I say more? Over the years, I've done everything I can to make it as special as possible for my kids, just like my parents did for me. 

If you would like to start a tradition with your friends or family, maybe this is the year to do so. Why not start with driving around to look at the most festive neighborhoods that go all out with lights for Christmas? I can even help you get started with some neighborhoods you must visit.

ODESSA NEIGHBORHOODS TO DRIVE THRU FOR FESTIVE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS:

Shiloh Road Lights-you can drive through this neighborhood in Odessa, for a light show you won't forget! Shiloh Road is located on the east side off of Stony Ridge and that is off of Eastridge.

Emerald Forest Estates-take a drive thru this gorgeous subdivision where the neighborhood gets super festive this time of year!

Country Club Estates-I have not been through here yet but it comes highly recommended from a friend who enjoys them every year!

MIDLAND NEIGHBORHOODS TO DRIVE THRU FOR FESTIVE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS:

Grassland Estates off of 191 in Midland-this is one of my favorites to see every year!

Christmas Wonderland on Ashwood-this is actually one house that really gets into the Christmas spirit, also known as the Thames Christmas Extravaganza located at 5600 Ashwood in Midland

Grab some hot chocolate, get comfy in your vehicle and take a drive through these neighborhoods in Midland and Odessa, they will definitely help get you in the holiday spirit!
