A Christmas Light Tradition

Dec 19, 2013 / Holidays     

The glittering displays of Christmas lights bring out the kid in all of us.  This year, make taking in the lights a family adventure.  Map out a list of decorated houses you want to see, put together some snacks, and then pile everyone in the car one evening and take a drive to see all the Christmas lights.  Take your time, drive slowly. Talk about which house you like best.  Pause to take some family pictures.  Give your kids time to “ooh and ahh” as you meander down the curved streets.  Cruising the Christmas lights as a family makes merry and meaningful memories.
