I remember when I was a kid walking in downtown Lansing with my mom looking at all of the really cool window displays. What I remember most were the Christmas displays that seemed so magical at the time because Christmas was all I thought about back then.

According to WILX, downtown Lansing businesses are getting into the holiday spirit with some friendly competition.

For the first year businesses on Washington Street can participate in a holiday storefront challenge for the chance to win $200.

Downtown Lansing Inc. said they want to provide a heart warming holiday atmosphere that people can enjoy while strolling down Washington Street.

To me, this is like reliving those days years ago in downtown Lansing. I can't wait to see all of the friendly holiday storefronts.
