LOCAL NEWS — The tradition of Christmas lights dates all the way back to the 17th century. German celebrators were the first to attach small candles to Christmas tree branches. In Europe, homeowners displayed a burning candle in their window. Today, holiday lights have come a long way. Outdoor Christmas light displays not only add to the wonder of the season but often bring out the competitive spirit among neighbors.

If you live in Lynchburg and you plan to decorate your abode with lights this holiday season, be sure to let the folks at Christmas in Lynchburg know so you can be included in their Lynchburg Twinkle Lights Tour. All featured homes will be added to a map that will be distributed during Christmas in Lynchburg. To be added, contact event organizers Lorrie McKenzie at 931-247-8691 or Gina Henshaw at 931-808-2359.•
