Even with an uncertain economic future, El Dorado County residents are showing an optimistic mood with grand holiday displays brightening the cold winter nights.

The days and weeks of stringing lights, illuminating the trees, setting up the deer, blanketing the hedges and arranging the naivety scenes has paid off to create beautiful scenes all over El Dorado County.

Now is the time to enjoy the dazzling festive displays. Put on those fun holiday sweaters, bundle up and pack everyone in the car and set out to find the brightest, the most unique, the most elegant or just a favorite display.

Sing some carols, and have a safe and wonderful holiday.
