As a kid I remember right after Christmas dinner at my grandma’s house in Jefferson, we would drive to Metairie so we could take a peek at Al Copeland’s house all done-up for Christmas. I feel like maybe over-the-top Christmas lights are a dying art form or something because I certainly don’t see them like I used to. I asked the Northshore Parent Facebook Page and got some suggestions. Then I got in my rockin’ mini van with the crew and went and check them out. So if you want to go see some Christmas lights with your kids, here’s the scoop:
