Planoites are an opinionated bunch. We may be the Guide to the Good Stuff, but we’re always curious to hear what you think. Every so often, we ask our online readers their opinion on a different topic. This time, we wanted to know:
What is your favorite holiday tradition around Plano?
Christmas Cops in Plano. I love volunteering, and I love how many families in need are helped during the holiday season.

Christmas Lights. Whether it be at Highland Park in Dallas, Deerfield in Plano or Vitruvian Park in Addison. Growing up, my parents would drive my brothers and me around at night to see Christmas lights, and now it is a fun tradition I do with my own family. The lights are a beautiful sight and provide a festive experience.
