Memphis Christmas Lights Facebook page makes it easy to find lights
Lindsey Rinaldi created the Memphis Christmas Lights Facebook page in 2018, which makes it easier for people to find displays.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Lindsey Rinaldi remembers the joy of being a child who drove the car with her parents in search of Christmas lights. Now, it makes it easier for families to find the same joy.
Rinaldi started the Memphis Christmas Lights Facebook page in 2018, where she shares videos of home shows and a general idea of their location.
Over the years she has searched for posts and as the page racked up thousands of subscribers, people often now submit their posts to be shared.
“I know I can post these photos and videos and even though people can’t afford to go out and see them, they can at least see them through Facebook,” Rinaldi said. “That way, they can always take advantage of something that is part of the Christmas season to make it happy and literally bright.
Rinaldi said she started the page after posting photos / videos and most of the responses were from people asking where the decorations were. She created a similar page in Nashville while living there before returning home to Memphis.
“I have had so many people who commented or just sent messages that ‘you have really helped us bring a lot of joy to our family’, especially in the last couple of years where things have been dark and gloomy,” she declared. “It really helps. “
Rinaldi, who works as a real estate agent, also maintains a blog called The Accessory File where she posts a list of all screens.
To help him with his work, a website has been set up by Midsouth Lights called Light901.com. On the page, it displays an interactive map of the Memphis area. People can click on a house and preview the displays and their location.
People can also submit their homes to the site.
Rinaldi said if people want to stick to an area and not drive too far, she recommends going to Collierville and Bartlett.
“Collierville and Bartlett seem to have the highest concentration of lights, so if you want to go there and not have to drive everywhere, go to one of these two areas because that’s where you’ll see the most,” a- she declared. “Just walk through the streets at random because you never know what you’re going to find. There are always those hidden gems.
Collierville also has an interactive map of postings here.
