Holiday cheer has been spreading like glitter around the Live Urban Office... a dusting of snow greeted us this morning and shoppers have been bustling around Highland Square. The only thing that could make a day like today better is an evening of holiday lights viewing. 

But, have you ever driven Denver's streets only to head home without setting eyes on any truly impressively decorated homes? 

Well, it turns out the Denver Post has an interactive map where you can find all of the most fantastic decorated homes across the Denver Metro Area - and if your house isn't already on the map, you can add it!
