Somerville, City of Lights

At this time of year, Somerville is synonymous with the season. Many of the city's streets are widely known for their bright lights and Christmas decorations, and it's been that way for years.

In fact, the Somerville Arts Council just celebrated the tenth anniversary of its annual Iluminations Tour. Trollies carried hundreds of people around the city to see some of the most lavish displays in the Boston area. As WBUR's Kevin Donovan discovered, some of the boldest decorators have travelled from afar.
