It’s Christmas Eve and we hope that all of your work is done. It’s probably just beginning, but that’s no reason not to stop for a break and take a little drive tonight or any night this weekend and check out all of the great Christmas lights in Louisville. We’ve been loving the neighborhoods all lit up for the season and we know you will, too. Pour a cup of eggnog, sit back and enjoy this visual light tour.
Blue columns, red bows and icicles
This was by far the best holiday house on Cherokee Road.
Lights galore on every level of this beautiful home

We love all the colors of lights at this home.
This house positively glows.

Hey there, Santa.
Fourth Street Live
Fourth Street Live is always lit up, but during the holidays, it is extra special.
Fleur de lis and snowflakes hang over the road.
Lights Over Louisville is great display of lights through the whole holiday season.
Norton Commons always has the holiday spirit, and the way the neighborhood is laid out, you can stroll around and look at lights while you shop, eat and drink. What a perfect night.
This Norton Commons house has lights strung all the way up the tall, tall branches of the tree. It makes a beautiful vertical line.
Multicolored lights are making a real comeback, and look especially great around a door.
This was one of the best houses in Norton Commons right off the town center.
This is always a favorite to watch, from the time they start decorating until the end, with every single branch being lit up on the tree. It is a delight to gaze at this beautiful, big, lit tree as you sit in traffic at Brownsboro Road and Rudy Lane.
One of our favorite holiday traditions — at the corner of Brownsboro Road and Rudy Lane sits this big tree that is always decked out in colorful lights.
Owl Creek must have a holiday lights decorating contest, because every single house on the main drag is lit up. And not just a few lights on the bushes either, we’re talking lots and lots of lights and an electric bill to match. Even the inflatables are huge on this street. It’s a long street and worth taking a drive through the neighborhood to gaze at the houses aglow.
There were many decked-out houses in Owl Creek, but this one took the cake. We have three different views to show you this lighting extravaganza.

A lovely display of candy cane lights
Bushes done, candy cane lights and lit reindeer — everything is covered here.
Foxboro is another neighborhood that has impressive displays, with residents taking a lot of time to plan and arrange their lighting.
Again, the multicolored lights, coupled with some great landscape lighting, really make this house shine.
Here’s a colorful scene of lights in Foxboro, where even the landscape lighting is red or green.
Crescent Hill is a go-to for all things holiday. All of the houses that decorate for Halloween also decorate to the nines for Christmas.

Those fa-la-la snowmen!
Now that’s a nativity scene!
We are trying to remember what this Hillcrest Avenue home looked like for Halloween, because you know it was decorated!
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
