Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas (and Happy Holidays to those of you that don’t celebrate). In honor of Christmas, here are some pictures I took when we went through Clearbrook’s Wonderland of Lights exhibit in Arlington Heights, IL. You get to drive through it and it’s about 1.6 miles in length. It was really fun to see. I love Christmas lights. We went on a weeknight right after work so we it wasn’t too crowded. With my coupon, it cost $8 to go through it but they give you a pass so you can go back through it on the same night only (which we did).

It was hard to get a shot of this cool dragon because the lights blink:

One of my favorite things there was a gingerbread man that did cartwheels. It was just adorable!!! Of course the picture I took of it looks like it’s going to headbutt a tree. Oh well.

This was just a sampling of the nifty Christmas lights they have. The end of the tour was spectacular. You get to drive under all of these arches with blinking lights so it looks like you are in a light tunnel.

Here is a video of it. I took it by holding my camera out of the car window so you might want to mute your speakers unless you like the sound of wind noise.

Best wishes for a safe, fun, and wonderful holiday season!!!!
