2017 Guide to Denton's holiday lights

If you have one of those advent calendars that dispenses chocolate treats, you already know there are 11 days until Christmas.

If your wallet's feeling a little light, or you need a breather from the shopping and holiday preparations, there's a time-honored tradition that costs nothing but some gas and a few hours of your time.

The Denton Record-Chronicle sent a few staffers out to drive through town on the first and second weekends of December to find yards that will delight little ones and bring a little coziness to adults behind the wheel. Then we invited readers to send us photos of their decorations — or to snap a photo of impressive displays they found while driving through the county.

Denton's byways are all dressed up for Christmas — with everything from hand-painted wood cutouts, to cheerful inflatables to those familiar strings of lights — all twinkling, blinking and glowing.

This isn't an exhaustive list — not even close. But if you're wondering where to find decorated homes and yards, you can start right here. (Scroll past images for a list of addresses.)
