Day 6: 12 Days of Christmas Sharing

 Today I am sharing "christmas lights."
On Saturday the entire family, my mom and dad, and my brother and his "fiancee" (news from Friday), went to Callaway Gardens to see the Fantasy in Lights display.  It is coordinated to Christmas and seasonal music throughout and is just beautiful!
 Here is my favorite part: the snowfall winter wonderland.
The pictures do not do it justice!

 The ice skaters...

 The twin trees....

You have the choice of driving through in your own car or riding the open air trolley.  We rode the trolley and it was a lot of fun.  There were MANY more areas and displays we rode through.  It was a great way to get in the mood for Christmas!
There are a few houses in our neighborhood who put up lights, one that really does a big display so we have the tradition of anytime we come home and it is dark, the kids want to ride down and see the lights.  We don't always get to go to a "big" display like Callaway, but I love it when we do.
Last year, Corey and I went to Disney World the second week of December and were able to see the Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights.  It is another VERY impressive lights display...in my top 3 I've ever seen for sure.  It is crazy! Click on the name to go to Google Images of it.
Do you have a tradition of looking at Christmas lights?

I've heard of the Fantasy of Lights!! I love looking at different displays =) My family isn't really into Christmas (due to differing views on whether or not it should be celebrated), but one day in the near future, I hope to take my brothers with me (if they're interested) to check one of the light displays out! =)

I LOVE looking at Christmas lights! We rode through neighborhoods when I was a child...and with my boys we had several big time displays nearby that we went to see several times during the Christmas season...

Here is my link for today...
