A week ago, BikeArlington organized a “Holiday Lights Ride” to visit some of the most decked-out homes in Arlington.
Among their stops:
- A home near the intersection of Key Blvd and N. Jackson Street
- A home on the 1700 block of N. Quebec Street
- A home on the 1600 block of N. Abingdon Street that was named 11th most outlandishly-decorated holiday home in the U.S. by MSN
Among the sights to see on the ride: a political “debate” of a dozen illuminated Christmas figurines, including Santa as a camera operator; Santa and his sleigh on a roof complete with reindeer and an American flag; and lots and lots of Christmas lights.
Those, of course, aren’t the only elaborate holiday displays in Arlington. In years past, readers have also reported crazy lights and decorations at homes on the 4200 block of 36th Street S. in Fairlington and the 5600 block of 24th Street N., near Lee Highway.
Where are the best decorations this year? Let us know in the comments.
