  1. Thanks you for the list, however you’re missing one fantastic light show… Shadrack Christmas Lights at the Gray fairgrounds is an awesome show designed and set to music! Please add them to your article!

  2. The only house listed for Johnson City at the 3502 address the lights were not even on, wasted drive. Much better houses in the other areas.

  3. My girls LOVED that I found this list last year!! They all began begging last week to go for another ride this year, so I hope this becomes a new little tradition!! So we will be doing some of these homes very soon and I will check back daily in hopes you’ve gotten more confirmations! Thank you for taking the time to compile this list!! I would have never found the time to locate these homes if not for Google bringing up this website in 2020!

  4. Great suggestions! Just a heads up. . .the Cherry Hill address in Limestone has only a single star light on at 8 pm. . .disappointing after the 15 miles drive off the beaten path.
