Whether you’ve already strung up the lights, or are putting it off for one more day, these 25 inspiring home Christmas light displays are a burst of merry inspiration. As a kid we had a pretty basic light display on our house, but I can definitely remember looking forward to those certain houses down the street that were all decked out. These houses around the world have a wide range of ways to display their Christmas cheer. There’s even a house in France where they have hung real Christmas trees from the windows.
