Memphis is at its festive best right now, with strands of holiday lights twinkling on streets from out east all the way to the river. Honestly, there’s no way Santa’s going to miss this place! As you celebrate Christmas Eve with family and friends, take time out to scroll down this visual display of holiday sights and lights in our city. Here’s our 2015 tribute to Christmas lights in Memphis.
Fun & Zany
These creative Memphians put loads of time and energy into their holiday yards … and in some cases, loads of cash into MLGW’s hopper. All the rest of us can say is, “thanks!” And now, Mr. Clark W. Griswold, here comes a run for your money.
Classic & Pretty
Tasteful, timeless, gracious and welcoming. These homes conjure up images of chestnuts roasting by an open fire, stockings hung in a row and wide-eyed kids on Christmas morning.
Timed to Music
These folks have entire radio stations timed to their impressive displays. Wow!
This one’s in Germantown…
Tune your radio dial to FM 106.3 while parked in front of this Germantown home. Be sure to keep the lights off, the radio low and the neighbors (and fellow viewers) in mind. Awesome!
This One’s in Bartlett …
This festive home in Bartlett is so legendary, it has its own website. Same rules as above apply, but tune to FM 101.7. We’re so impressed!
