GREENSBORO, N.C. — “Is your house on fire, Clark?”
“No, Aunt Bethany, those are the Christmas lights!”
Do you have a holiday lights display that would give Clark Griswold from the movie “Christmas Vacation” a run for his money?
If so, we want to see your Christmas lights and add you to our list of “must-stops” to drive by! If you know of a neighborhood that’s not featured you can also send WFMY News 2 an email.

We’ve made it really easy for you to share your Christmas light photos with WFMY News 2 and the community.
You can share photos and videos in the “Near Me” section of the WFMY News 2 app. You’ll find it among the list of navigation on the homepage.
