'Tis the season for jingle bells and walking (or driving) through winter wonderlands.

We're putting together a map of holiday light displays to guide you on your winter wandering. Have you seen any decorations that made you "oooh," "aaah," or drop your jaw? List the location in the comments, and we will add it to the map below.

Also, there are just a couple of days left to join our Deck the House virtual showcase. Send a photo of your indoor or outdoor holiday display to, along with a brief description of what makes it special. We'll give readers a chance to vote on their favorites next week and feature the favorite home(s) in a future print edition of

Current entries to the Deck the House showcase are marked in red below.

Happy touring!

Textile-Lohr home is incredible. Photo does not do it justice. It's decorated 360 degrees around the house and along Textile Road. Definitely worth a nice evening drive.

We have grown to appreciate minimal, tasteful lighting, not an in-your-face flaunting of wasteful energy. Not a bah-humbag approach, but more of a respect-the-planet philosophy. Sometimes, less is best.

The most amazing display I saw during my years in Ann Arbor was on Walter, just east of N. Maple, between Dexter and Miller. Hope they're still doing it. Check it out.
