Welcome back the HO-HO-Holidays this year with this 2021 Christmas Light Guide - Irvine Moms




This year, we were fortunate enough to find the California Christmas Lights website, a detailed archive of the biggest and best Christmas light display in nearly every city and county you could dream of! We decided to comb through our own cities and highlight the must sees in each city. Navigate your way through our spotlights in cities like Yorba Linda, Anaheim, Buena Park, Fullerton, and Garden Grove! We’ve included pictures of their most recent display and a few short details of each display. We hope to see you at one of the displays this Holiday season! Visit IrvineMomsNetwork.com for more fun guides like this and any other information you didn’t know you needed. All images are property of California Christmas Lights.
