Riding the Christmas Lights Trail

It was the Duchess of Windsor who said "You can never be too rich or too thin." Was it Jennings Osborne who said "You can never have too many Christmas lights"? Whoever, the thought is surely appropriate in Arkansas today. Sixty-six communities are adazzle in this year's version of what the state Parks and Tourism Department calls the Trail of Holiday Lights. (The Tea Party's not pleased with that name, we'll bet. Holiday, indeed.) Old-timers can remember when outdoor Christmas lights were scarce in Arkansas. Now, every region of the state has dozens of towns with impressive displays. A person could drive from Texarkana to Piggott and see awesome Christmas light displays every few miles. A person probably wouldn't, but a person could.

Above is a list of the Trail towns, by region.
