Trucks and Christmas parades go hand-in-hand like Santa and his sleigh.

And it’s not just the trucks that pull the floats…it’s the ones decked out with Christmas lights that are hard to beat. Most trucks already look good, and when you throw on some Christmas lights, it’s just icing on the cake. You just can’t help but smile when seeing one.

Hard Working Trucks has posted some recent 2016 parade videos below that will be sure to get you in the holiday mood.

One of HWT’s favorites would have to be a cement mixer covered in lights. It’s certainly no small task to wrap that drum. Really, it’s a task to cover all the trucks, for that matter. The work is greatly appreciated.

You’ll find the cement mixer in the New Jersey fire truck parade. Hey…maybe one day we’ll be able to post a New Jersey cement mixer Christmas video, but for the time being, they’re riding shotgun in the fire truck parade.

The annual Campbell River Truck Parade in Campbell River, British Columbia, Canada is featured alongside the Christmas Truck Parade in Victoria, B.C., Canada. These two Christmas truck parades are among the most popular on YouTube.

The last video is a marketing manager’s dream come true–that is, if you work for Coca-Cola. Coke trucks in Leipzig, Germany were recently adorned with lights and paraded through town much to the delight of onlookers. Take a close look, though, because what these trucks are carrying may surprise you.

Special thanks to everyone who took the time to record and upload these videos on YouTube. Do them a favor and like their video.
