One tradition that I used to love was piling the family into the old station wagon and heading out into the neighborhoods to hunt for Christmas lights.  Well, my boyfriend and I decided to bring it back so we did a little hunting of our own this year, thanks to a little help from the listings published in the Star Tribune.

On our way back from my aunt's house in Arden Hills we ran into this home.  I really like the way they spread the lights out and utilized the entire yard.  Very classic feel.

While in commute to the next house on our list we happened to spot this truck parked outside a home in the Coon Rapids area.  Totally decked out in lights and in the back, it's a little hard to see from this angle, but there's a Christmas tree that's also all lit up.  Cool idea!

Finally, my favorite house was this rambler, also in Coon Rapids.  As you can see, they have an amazing collection of blow molds, which can be a rare find.  In fact, some people spend their entire year hunting these down for their collections.  What a sight!
