Your spectacular Christmas decorations
Sleepy Hollow transforms to Candy Cane Lane
"The fact that literally hundreds of families cooperate in decorating their neighborhood makes it pretty special," Lloyd says. "When you add the carolers, hot chocolate and cookies that can be found for sale up and down the streets, it makes it seem like a Norman Rockwell scenario . . . minus the snow."

It is that time of year again, when Christmas lights go up in the Sleepy Hollow area of Torrance, California; transforming it into Candy Cane Lane. The tradition started in 1985 as a block party so that neighbors could get to know each other better. Today, in a great show of how neighbors can work together for the common good, several blocks in Torrance are dressed to the nines in an explosion of Christmas and holiday decorations.
The lights are on from 6:00 to 10:00 PM every night from now through the evening of January 1, 2014. This is great family fun for old and young alike. For more photos as well as directions to Candy Cane Lane please visit http://www.gotbaddog.com/sleepy-hollow-christmas-lights/
