Looking for Holiday Lights

Posted By on Fri, Nov 25, 2011 at 6:00 AM

They're out there, lurking, just biding their time until the moment comes—the holiday light fanatics.

They are the ones who have been preparing for months—spending weekends carefully mapping out their plans, laying out long strands of lights and triple-checking every blub before coordinating the light pattern with customized holiday music and making sure the giant inflatable Santa and his sleigh are in prime condition to be displayed alongside the custom gilded reindeer team.

They're the ones whose December electricity bill causes involuntary spasms and uncontrollable fits of weeping.

Maybe you live down the street from one of these extreme holiday decorators. Maybe there's a slight hesitation when you admit one of these people is your "better half." Maybe you're one of them yourself. Whatever the case, if you know of any particularly spectacular holiday light displays, we want to know about them.

We're looking for suggestions of houses, streets or neighborhoods to visit to highlight some of the best holiday light displays in Boise. If you know of a can't-miss stop, drop us a note either as a comment on this blog post, or email info to
