What’s up with that Christmas house???

UPDATE: Please see comments below! Thanks so much to whoever sent that list! Please lemme know who you are so I can thank you!!!!! My dad is excited.

I love watching the show on HGTV but didn’t think there was any houses around us worthy of making it onto that…until last year. That’s when my other Christmas Lovin’ friend, Candi, introduced me to a house in Steger, IL. It’s a few miles west of 394 off of Steger Road and is actually on Hawswood Rd. Anyhoo, they deck their house out so well (see above) so last night we took my parents.
On the way back we swung by a place in Homewood/Flossmoor that’s just off of Dixie Highway at the intersection of Flossmoor and Dartmouth. It’s actually a whole street who put lights over the street and in their gardens and was really attractive.
Of course both things are FREE so it’s a fun freebie for the kiddos. And if you’re new around here and didn’t catch it, check out my list of free/cheap things to do around Chicagoland/Northwest Indiana around Christmas.

If you know of an amazing house with lights that we could take my parents to see, please leave a comment or email asap! We don’t have anything like this in England so it’s fun for them. Thanks!
