Enjoy finding yards full of holiday light? Then visit the Twinkle Trail brand new website



Each year after Turkey Day and before Santa arrives, I pack my family in the van and we head out for a drive.

We stop off for cocoa before making our way to see the best of the city’s holiday light displays.

The kids always love it and I admit I do, too, but there’s a secret I have and my kids don’t have a clue.

There are loads of lit houses all around town but if you want to find the best, a list just can’t be found.

Sure, a network or newspaper has made lists in the past but the quality and relevance of that list doesn’t last.

So I did what I do, I had an idea for a website. One for sharing favorite yards full of holiday light.

I emailed some friends who make great things with code. They agreed to help build it and we made sure it glowed.

And now it’s ready, it’s live on the Internet for all. But like YouTube when it launched it seems a bit small.

I’m hoping you’ll help and make use of the site. Add an address, a photo, somewhere beautiful at night.

If you add just one place or even tell just one friend then the site will be wonderful before the year’s end.

Next year after turkey but before Santa sets sail, you’ll remember to visit the website I call Twinkle Trail.
