Most people have heard of Candy Cane Lane, a neighborhood in Woodland Hills that puts up elaborate holiday displays. There are a number of other neighborhoods around Los Angeles that can also deck the halls.

It all started in South Redondo when a local French restaurant encouraged the neighbors to put white lights in the trees. Every year, a little neighborhood east of Prospect and south of Palos Verdes Drive threatens to put GE out of business.

The streets are closed to through traffic between 5pm and 10pm, but it's better to park on the other side of Prospect and walk anyways. Driving through this madness, you are trapped for the entire route, with no escape from jolliness.

As if those animatronic deer weren't creepy enough, here they drink thirstily from a pool of - light.

Before those fancy-assed moveable reindeer, we had to decorate old-school!
