We always do as everyone in the family loves an excuse to just spend an hour in the car together gawking at the neighborhoods. Our local Sertoma Club also sponsors a holiday lights show in our largest park that we enjoy.

We will go out to certain neighborhoods to see the lights at night, though our immediate community does not have them on every street, so we are better off in our town!  Alot of snowbirds do not decorate, or cannot decorate, though I do enjoy seeing lights if they are up, as ours are PropertyMinder Inc..  I do like the WH decorations, and always love Black & White scenes - it is dramatic the way the 'sky' looks, too!

We always make an outing out of viewing Xmas lights. One year we boarded a bus that took us around to different neighborhoods (nice because you could spike your hot chocolate), another year we drove up to Prescott, AZ because they had snow and they decorate the Courthouse Square with thousands of lights. We almost always go to the Mormon Temple in Mesa because they decorate the entire grounds which is about a 4 block area. https://youtu.be/VftOOnaSBnw

As for your picture of the White House. It reminds me of the scene from The Wizard of Oz when Dorothy & Co. are going to meet the wizard.
