Orange Show Christmas Lights EyeOpener Tour

4,800 Santas, thousands of lights and a little eggnog

Think you’ve seen Christmas in Houston? Well, you haven’t seen anything until you take the Orange Show Christmas Lights EyeOpener Tour. Sure, the annual tour includes a drive through the Heights to see all those light-drenched, decorated historic homes, which anyone can see. But only the EyeOpener Tour includes a visit to Martha Tucker’s Post Oak area penthouse, which she has filled with more than 4,800 Santas — that’s a lot of ho-ho-ho’s. Tucker has been collecting Santas for more than 20 years, but they’re all about to be boxed up, so this is the last chance to see them. And only the EyeOpener Tour includes a stop at Gloria Jones’s brightly decorated house in 2nd Ward’s Scott Terrace for eggnog and insider info on this often overlooked, but nonetheless fabulously decorated, neighborhood. The Orange Show also promises to include “a few surprises.” 5 p.m. 2402 Munger. For information, call 713-926-6368 or visit www.orangeshow.org. $35 to $50.
Sun., Dec. 16, 5 p.m., 2007
