Every year Richmond, Virginia hosts the most spectacular Christmas light displays. Hundreds of homeowners decorate their homes with ridiculous amounts of Christmas lights. Cars, limos and buses filled with families, friends and coworkers plan tours throughout the city of Richmond and its suburbs like Henrico, Chesterfield and Hanvover. The Tacky Lights Tour has become an annual tradition for thousands of people.
No! These spectacular Christmas lights are not tacky at all! In Richmond, tacky is a term of endearment. Tacky represents the houses most overloaded with Christmas lights. Tacky comes in all colors, blinking sequences and holiday designs. Tacky is a Christmas label Richmonders respect and adore.
