Top Holiday Lights Celebrations Across America
Top Holiday Lights Celebrations Across America
The winter holiday season is one of the most family-together times of the year and, with schools closed and parents nesting at home to bake, wrap presents, and prepare to celebrate, there's a little extra free time to take in local celebrations. For some families, it may be cutting down their own tree; for others, their holiday tradition is oohing and aahing over the light display in a favorite city, botanic garden, zoo or theme park.
TakingtheKids columnist Eileen Ogintz notes in her popular blog that some families may opt to see the holiday lights in far-flung destinations with grandparents (Tauck offers these multigenerational groups with their special Bridges trips, for example) or head out together for holidays in Hong Kong as she did last year! Please check out our fun online magazine, below, packed with her favorite celebrations.
