It's almost that time. Time to start getting into the festive spirit as Thanksgiving is just around the corner and  Christmas lights are being hung. This year's Wonderland of Lights will have its opening ceremony the day before Thanksgiving on Wednesday, November 24.

The Wonderland of Lights is a Christmas tradition in East Texas. It's an easy drive to Marshall, Texas and it's a ton of fun for the whole family.

What Makes This House in Texas Unique? It's Totally Underground!

This is one of the craziest houses ever because it's totally underground.
The house is located in Buffalo, Texas. The house is $3,000 Square feet and sits on or should we say under almost 40 acres. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and no windows! But the owners got creative bringing the outdoors inside. Check out the murals in the house. Painted trees, blue skies plus a room that has a beach scene mural. Why would you need windows?
