Winter is upon us, bringing abundant darkness and long nights. But there’s a dazzling remedy for this cold season: holiday lights. These lights, in a kaleidoscope of colors, charm even the coldest hearts.
First appearing in the 1930s, holiday lights spread the spirit of the season during the Great Depression. While it’s no longer the Great Depression era, the twinkles of color still announce the season of giving.
Imagine creating Norman Rockwell moments of your own. So gather family and friends, bring a thermos of hot cocoa, and enjoy this multi-generational, free activity.
Eden Prairie Local News (EPLN) invites you to explore its specially curated map, showcasing a dazzling array of holiday light displays by local residents.

Enjoy the journey!
