It's the time of year when we load up the family car and head out to see some of the fantastic Christmas displays that people have put together in their front yards.

It's amazing how big some of these displays can be. Many of them feature some great computer technology -- synching the displays to Christmas songs for a fantastic sound and light display.

Here are some of the displays around the Grand Rapids area that have appeared on YouTube this year. We've included the address and a map so that you can not only watch the video, but actually drive by and see it in person.
