If you are ever in Chattanooga, Tn during the holidays stop in Rock City Gardens and enjoy the Christmas lights. This link will take you to their web site for a look at some of the lights. http://www.seerockcity.com/pages/Enchanted-Garden-of-Lights/ This is one of the things our family enjoys doing each year during the holidays. If you don't mind the crowds it is fun before Christmas. They have local Chorus groups there to sing, they have crafts and pictures with Santa.
Our family hates crowds so we enjoy Rock City after Christmas Day, we went last night. We like to continue the fun of the holidays after Christmas Day. I even enjoy watching a good Christmas movie after Christmas Day. There is more time to just enjoy! I still want to watch the Polar Express!
We leave our tree up until New Years, it's sad to me to take it down too soon.
Happy New Year to everyone!
