Midwest weather can be unpredictable and get brutally cold during the fall and winter months, but that shouldn't stop you and the family from enjoying some beautiful Christmas light displays over the holidays.

There are several drive-through holiday light shows around the Stateline area, but we've found two that have an incredible amount of lights that will immerse you, and all those in your vehicle, into another world of twinkle.

The Shine Light Show has two locations in Illinois, but the displays are different at each location with unique features and experiences.

Shine Light Show Schaumburg

Located at Wintrust Field, 1999 S. Springinsguth Road, and is open nightly from 6 to 10 pm.

Over a million lights will overwhelm your senses as they dance to synchronized Christmas music that you can tune into from your car radio. Plus, tickets on the Jolly Trolley are available if you want someone else to guide you through the light show.

And don't be surprised if you get a visit from the Grinch along the Shine Light Show journey.

Shine Light Show Northbrook

Located in Northbrook Court at 1515 Lake Cook Road, this display is running 6 to 10 pm through January 1 and allows you to immerse yourself into a world of over a million Christmas lights and holiday music.

Admission tickets for either location of the Shine Light Show are $32.99 for weekdays and $42.99 on weekends. A fast pass is available for an additional $20 per car.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
