1. Where to see the most spectacular Christmas lights around Fort Worth in 2021. The magic is back. After a dimmer holiday celebration in 2020, the Fort Worth area is lighting up, merry and bright, for the Christmas season once again — from towering trees that twinkle and shine to dazzling drive-thru displays and immersive walk-thru experiences. Here's our 2021 guide to the biggest, brightest, most spectacular Christmas light displays in the area. 

2. Fort Worth's buzziest neighbor (sort of) crowned best U.S. place to live by New York Times. So long to that old, unfortunate nickname "Useless." The city of Euless is now officially Fort Worth's hottest neighbor, having just been crowned The New York Times' best place to live in the U.S. — well, sort of.

3. DFW family battles for holiday supremacy on TV's Great Christmas Light Fight this week. A North Texas family well-known locally for their "extreme," 70,000-light holiday displays got to shine in the national spotlight on December 2 as competitors on the hit ABC reality series The Great Christmas Light Fight. While the Burkman family didn't win the $50,000 grand prize, they're winning hearts with their charitable efforts. The lights are now on for the public to enjoy. 

4. It's a frenzy of limited-edition items in this Fort Worth restaurant news. This roundup of Fort Worth restaurant news has a clock ticking.

5. Country supercouple Tim McGraw & Faith Hill to perform together in Arlington. Fresh off their filming of the Yellowstone spinoff 1883 in the Fort Worth area, country superstars Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are returning to Arlington for a one-day-only performance together next spring. They'll take the stage at AT&T Stadium on March 6, 2022 as part of Teton Ridge's "The American" Western rodeo event.
