Christmas Reflections 2011 - view holiday lights in DeFuniak Springs
'Tis the season of lights and historic DeFuniak Springs is aglow with over 3 million. Traditionally, our lights go on the day after Thanksgiving and continue to glow each night until December 31st. We invite you to enjoy this wonderful display for the first time or for your annual trip to DeFuniak Springs.
The trip is more than worth it as you drive around our placid lake and view the reflection of millions of lights.
It’s a photographer's dream and many come to capture the sights and scenes on display. Trees laden with thousands of lights illuminate hand-painted figures for the young and the young at heart. Enjoy again the serenity and beauty of our nativity that reminds us of the true reason for the season. The Victorian silhouette figures throughout the display remind us of a simpler time in our history and recall our historic heritage.
Other displays show Santa’s elves working hard to prepare toys for all good girls and boys. Animals romp through the trees and penguins skate on the grassy slopes in our cool night air. We are pleased to introduce a new feature this year, the traditional “Twelve Days of Christmas.” This delight in riotous color and beauty is a welcome addition to the season.
The display opens each evening from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and admission is only $3 per person, with children 6 and under free. Season passes for unlimited viewing of the dazzling display are available for $35.
Directions: From Hwy. 90 West, turn right onto U.S. 331 South. Turn left at the first red light (Live Oak Avenue). Follow this to the entrance of Christmas Reflections.

Make sure you stop for dinner at the H&M hot dog stand first. Closes at 5:30 on Mon.-Fri. and 4 PM on Saturday. Closed on Sunday. Our faves? Andouille dog with grilled onions, Chicago dog, and the double cheeseburger. We keep the menu in the glove compartment of our vehicle so we can order ahead because the line can get long.
