Every holiday season I find myself looking at different homes around the area to see how they decorated their house for Christmas. I'm always amazed by the variety - some are traditional, others non-traditional, some extreme and some not so extreme. One event that is taking place in Texarkana is the 2012 Christmas Tour of Homes presented by the Texarkana Board of Realtors in conjunction with the Texarkana Museums System,  Sunday, Dec. 2 from 1 - 6 p.m. Local residents will open their homes for this very special tour that benefits the Arkansas Special Olympics. Homes can be toured in any order and tickets ($10) can be purchased at the door of any home.

Here's the 2012 tour list of homes.
