A Little Time and a Keyboard: A Season of Lights

A Season of Lights

Sunday, December 4, 2011

One of my favorite activities during the holiday season is ambling through light displays.  We spent yesterday visiting Santa, watching a holiday puppet show, and decorating the tree.  What would be better than a light show to cap off our day of merriment?  So, our family decided to venture out to one of the area's holiday light displays hosted by the Cosley Zoo in Wheaton.

The zoo is not very big, however, its light show did not disappoint in holiday charm.  Immediately upon entering the zoo, our spirits were lifted by a sea of Christmas trees and the wafting joy of carolers.  As we walked through the zoo, we were greeted by light displays in every corner.  Many of the light displays served as odes to the animals of the zoo.  There was a duck display near the duck pond, a pig display near the pigpen, and even a coyote display near the coyotes!  An added bonus--many of the animals were still out. 

Admission to the festival is free--another bonus!  However, the zoo hosts a Christmas tree sale and the gift store houses many festive items for purchase---so it is hard to leave without finding some holiday gem to purchase!

The light display was a great way to cap off our day of holiday cheer and really put us in the mood for the season.  If you are looking for a way to end one of your days of holiday fun, be sure to check out the light displays in your area.  If you are in my neck of the woods, give the Cosley Zoo a try!
