It's time that we finally admit that Meridian knows Christmas. We know for a fact that Idaho knows Christmas and that there are plenty of Christmas-y things to get excited about in Boise... but can we take a minute to acknowledge how well Meridian does Christmas? It's insane.

If you've ever spent any time in Meridian during the holiday season, you know that the city of Meridian looks like something that belongs in a snow globe. Not just any cheap snow globe either. I'm talking about that $40 banger that you find at your local Ross. You think that sucker is cheap but when you pick it up, you're like: "Damn, this is heavy."

Then you flip that sucker over and all of a sudden, you're looking at a barcode sticker with a price tag that's somewhere in the neighborhood of $40 and the pink slip on your car (that's still a thing, right?).

Scentsy Is The Ultimate Christmas Light Experience

First and foremost, not only is this entire experience FREE. But also, you're set up right across from the two greatest inventions ever made - the mall and Albertsons. You've got that wonderful little bar they have at the Albertsons where you can slam a few brews (or if you're feeling a little fancy, those sweet little Netter Better cocktails they got right now) and do some shopping... or you can head on over to The Village at Meridian and get you some of that fancy cabernet sauvignon. Of course, you'll likely do some shopping while you're there and enjoy the holiday light show in the famous water fountain thing they have a la the Bellagio.


You can take a trek on a path that Santa Claus himself very well could have pathed out using the Blade of Christmas Cheer, Rambo-style. Scroll on to get your ultimate detailed look at one of the greatest displays of Christmas lights of all time.
