For many people the holiday season would not be complete without a drive to view the festive Christmas light displays in their neighborhood. These beautiful lights are a tradition whose origins began in medieval times to ward off the darkness and bring back the light during the shortened days of winter. Today we know lack of light during the winter months can cause seasonal affective disorder, or winter depression. There are many ways people can fight these winter blues such as bright light therapy, or a quick getaway to a Dominican Republic hotel where they can bask in the sun on prime beachfront property. Christmas time is also one of the best times to visit the Yucatan as there are many affordable Cancun deals available. Whether your idea of the perfect holiday season is a drive to see the Christmas lights in the freshly fallen snow or a trip to a sunny locale, enjoying the season with friends and family is the most important thing.
