Colorful Christmas, the best light displays in Amarillo

O Holy night, the houses are brightly shining...

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - The holiday season is upon us once more and with this time of the year comes many holiday traditions, like looking at Amarillo's beautiful Christmas light displays.

While you're waiting for the snow to fall, here's a few places you should check out for some Christmas magic!

Bishop Hills

For the last 50 years, the Bishop Hills community has rallied together to bring an Amarillo staple to life.

Each house has something different to offer, whether it's a cleverly crafted scene or a display of inflatable Christmas cartoons. It's fun for the whole family and if it isn't a part of your Christmas traditions... it should be, immediately!

To see this winter wonderland head northwest on Tascosa Road north of Loop 335 (the exact address is 9515 Tascosa Road). You can't miss the lights, they shine over the hills like a beacon to a Christmas paradise.

Admission is always free but the Amarillo Lion's Club is on-site collecting donations and old eyeglasses.

The Botanical Gardens

This is the most romantic destination listed, and its history is even sweeter.

The first garden club of Amarillo was created in 1929 by a group of hardworking women and has since flourished. Nowadays, garden-goers have the chance to stroll hand-in-hand through the dimly lit garden or through the tunnel of lights.

But don't get us wrong, Christmas in the Gardens is also a great place for families. With a different light theme in each section, your children will surely be entertained, especially when Santa Claus comes to town!

Year-after-year, Candy Cane Lane has a reputation for being one of the brightest and most breathtaking light displays in the Amarillo area. If you haven't seen it yet be sure to swing by, but bring sunglasses with you because like we said, there are A LOT of lights!

If you're just hoping to make a quick tour, make sure to go during the week. The site is packed every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.

This family totally has Christmas spirit! They always have every inch of their house decorated and they even sync their light display to an FM radio station.

You'll have to wait a few minutes to hear a Christmas song, and if you're feeling really patience you should wait for Trans-Siberian Orchestra's "Carol of the Bells."

That's the song playing in the video above, it's a crazy sight to see!
