Get into the spirit: five places to see light displays this weekend

This time last year we had a little help getting into the Christmas spirit from Mother Nature, as a blanket of snow covered the ground in Baton
Rouge. If you’re looking for a boost of Christmas spirit this year, the answer could be one of the area’s dazzling Christmas light displays. Here are five places to get your twinkle on, without having to do it yourself!
