Your Guide to Holiday Lights Around Memphis 2022

2

I remember driving around Memphis in the back seat of my parent’s car with all my siblings when I was little looking at Christmas lights. We’d drink hot chocolate, get into our pajamas, and drive all over trying to find the best display. We did this every year, until one of my sisters got car sick and threw up. Now I’ve started this same tradition with my own three kids. Luckily, there’s so many options to choose from! look at Christmas lights meme
