It may be cold in Minnesota during the Holidays, but it's also beautiful! I just spent over 15 years in San Diego, California.  Although it is beautiful there and having summer-like temperatures year-round was wonderful, there was one thing I always missed.

There's something about seeing holiday lights against a snowy backdrop.  Here in Minnesota we're lucky to have such beauty through the holidays and I'm excited to be back and have the opportunity to enjoy it again.

If you love that too, here are some holiday light displays you don't want to miss.
