'Twas the day before Christmas
When all across Ohio's Northeast
Bellies prepared for a great Holiday feast
And festive displays -- got us all in the spirit
We're taking you there... no need to be near it!
Merry Christmas wishes in Solon to the sounds of the season
Decorated with care—and all for a reason
Festive tunes keeping time with the light
A pretty display against the backdrop of night.
Now on Dasher and Dancer, Prancer and Vixen...
As we move to Strongsville for even more Holiday Fixin's.
Twinkling twigs and a carousel aglow...
Only this year... there's no sign of snow!
28 years ago this display had just 35 lights
It's now grown to 55-*thousand, of colors and whites.
Drawing awestruck glances from children young and old
This show on Crown Point Parkway is one of Santa's favorites, we're told.
Our tour continues in Ashtabula with cheer...
The sprawling feast for our eyes showing Christmas is near!
When we visited, the flakes were falling.
A sure sign that December 25th is calling.
And now for a final stop on our Holiday light tour...
A home in North Ridgeville with some really impressive décor!
From a glittery flag of patriotic pride...
As Santa in an airplane takes a jolly ride...
Hundreds of twinkling lights strung with care....
Certainly no shortage of Christmas flair.
And the heart of the season on display...
In celebration of a very special birthday.
Before we end this tour—it just wouldn't be right...
If we didn't say "Merry Christmas to all—and to all a good night!"
