In these dark times, the twinkling lights that adorn trees, houses and yards help Alaskans through what can often be a dreary season. KTVA wanted to highlight decoration displays that go above and beyond to spread the magic of the holidays.

These spots across Southcentral are helping it to feel a little more like Christmas, even if it's not looking like it. Pack a thermos of hot cocoa, bundle up the kids and make the drive to check out these stunners.
