It's a labor of love and an Atlantic County holiday tradition: Yard Family Christmas Display in Absecon, and after taking a break in 2022 it's officially back and ready to welcome you and your family.

Yard is a definitely a must-visit if you're a Christmas lights lover, not only for the festive scenery, but for the family that hosts it.

Set your GPS for 4 E. Curran Drive in Absecon and you'll find yourself among one of South Jersey's most elaborate holiday lights displays, complete with Snoopy, Mickey Mouse, Yeti, and even R2-D2. Everywhere you turn, there are more lights, more color, and more attractions!
