One of my favourite holiday memories as a child involved holiday lights. One evening every December, my parents would bundle my brother and me into the car, take us for hot chocolate and then cruise on over to Edmonton's Candy Cane Lane to look at all the lights.
We'd sit with our noses pressed up against the window of our 1984 Plymouth Reliant, getting all sugared up and pointing out all the cool displays. It was magical.
Holiday "light-seeing" is a tradition all over Canada. Here just a few of the light-seeing opportunities across the country:
The Halifax Chronicle Herald is building a user-generated map of places to go "light-seeing" in the province.
