  •  It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. At least that's the case at Rick and Pat Seidl’s home on New Jackson Highway in Magnolia.

    With the glow of thousands of Christmas lights, animated decorations, inflatable holiday characters and a miniature ferris wheel, the only thing missing for the season is Santa himself and snow.

    The Seidls began their Christmas collection more than 31 years ago, but it has been in the past decade that they started decorating their front yard elaborately for passersby to enjoy.

  •  The homeowner at 228 Forresta Court in Hodgenville has added music to their holiday display. A sign announces ‘it’s more than blinky blinky!’ and advises drivers to tune in to 93.7.
