With the holiday season around the corner, the mind turns towards how to make this time of year special. Because of social distancing, many traditions need to be tweaked or even altogether abandoned this year. Such things can make one lose their holiday cheer quickly. What to do to save one from the bah humbugs!?! Well, before a trio of ghosts come to take you on an adventure, why not go on one of your own!
See the Lights!
The Raleigh/Triangle area in North Carolina is famous for its amazing Christmas lights! Many spend months planning and decorating their part of the world to inspire hope and holiday joy. Here are just a few of the areas you and your loved ones can enjoy together!
- Fieldstream Farm Christmas Lights: This display on Old Stage Road in Raleigh boasts one of the largest scenic displays around, including a 40-foot Santa to welcome you to the holidays! For $20 a car, a little extra if there are more than 8 individuals inside the vehicle, you’ll all feel the cozy glow of being together as you all drive along, enjoying the LED lights shining for you.
- Lights on the Neuse: If you prefer to stretch your legs, stop by Loop Road in Clayton for a hayride, pretty light displays, and a chance to socially distance with Santa! It’s $10 per person while those who happen to be 2-years-old and younger get to enjoy for free! Tickets are for specific times so you and your posse can enjoy this magical place at a time that works best for you!
- Lake Myra Christmas: S. Cypress St in Wendell is home to a display of lights that will make you feel like you’re finally home for Christmas. Said to be one of the best light shows in the Triangle, this display is free for all to enjoy, but if you’d like to donate to their cause, they would be very welcome.
Viewing vast arrays of colored lights is a beloved tradition for many people. Folks grow nostalgic for the days where everyone would pile in the car to drive through the neighborhood to ooh and ahh over what the neighbors had created for the holidays. Although the holidays this year may look different, some things can still stay the same. Take your family to view the beauty this season has to offer by exploring the works of heart created to make this corner of the world a little brighter for the season when anything can happen.
