Electric and heating bills can run pretty high this time of year, so it's hard not to admire those who still unabashedly decorate their homes' exteriors with an enthusiasm level reaching Clark Griswold highs. Apparently Woodbury is a hot center for such seasonal shenanigans, because this Saturday there will be bus tours where riders can vote on the best decorations in the cozy suburb. If you have little ones, it is recommended that you take the family-friendly tour at 5 p.m. or the all-ages tour at 7 p.m., but there's also a 55-and-over tour, as well as a wine tasting tour for those 21 and over at 6:30 p.m. Riders on all trips will be asked to vote for their favorite. The best house will presumably win something really cool—a giant light bulb, perhaps? $10. For a complete schedule and a list of locations selling tickets, visit www.woodburyholidaylights.com.
