Rome-Area Christmas Lights

A few of these houses would sure give Clark a run for his money!

If someone were to ask me what it is that most gets me get into the Christmas spirit, I would reply without hesitation: Christmas Lights. Whether it’s a lighted tree in the window or a house worthy of Clark Griswold’s praise, I notice and appreciate them all.  …and a few of these houses  would sure give Clark a run for his money!
