Photographer Jesse Rieser Documenting Christmas In America

This is the time of year when families can pile into the car and go driving around, looking at Christmas lights. And, the more, the better — the lights, the inflatable Santas and snowmen, the music — the whole bit.

Photographer Jesse Rieser has been documenting how Americans celebrate Christmas for the past eight years, across 15 states in the Southwest, South, Midwest and Pacific Northwest. His " Christmas in America" project shows crazy light displays, but also smaller, more personal ones.

Jesse Rieser joined The Show to talk about what he's found.
