During the holidays, self-expression moves from bumper stickers to a larger display: our homes. Decorated and illuminated businesses and homes benefit the community through creative artistic ideas that help celebrate the holiday season. Check out the many decorated homes and businesses around Ashland in our online .

The images were captured by Thom Larkin, Kara Lewis and yours truly. If you have a photo of Ashland decorations that we missed, e-mail it to me at so we can add it to our photo gallery. We want to say thanks to everyone who helps light up our holiday season.
