Christmas Light Displays in our area

Drumroll please!

It's time for my annual post about Christmas light displays!!!!!

Merry Christmas lovely ladies,

I wanted to share something fun that Pastor Greg and I enjoy doing this time of year in the area. Drive around looking at Christmas lights on private homes (don't forget the hot chocolate).

Please note that I haven't personally seen those marked with asterisk* so feel welcome to comment if you go there and let us all know about your experience.

Also, this list was accurate in Dec 2016 but we haven't gotten to check them all out yet this season.

Make sure you call a neighbor or invite someone from church you haven't gotten to know very well yet.  And have a jolly time!
Rejoicing that our Savior has come to us!

Henleyville Christmas Village 13901 Mattie Hanies Rd., Mt Airy,21771
The Henleyville Christmas Village started in 1992 with just two small buildings and three animated characters and has grown immensely in its 23 years. The walk through Christmas town now includes over 15 buildings, 65 animated characters and almost 20 blow ups on 1/3 of an acre. Visitors may crawl through a Disney Castle, hang Christmas balls on a Christmas tree and help load Santa’s sleigh. Attractions include an elf shop, the North Pole Fire Department, a candy shop and play house. Great for kids!

Homestead Gardens. They light up all the trees outside beautifully and inside the entire nursery is converted to Christmas. Huge model train set, tons of trees and lights and really ornate ornaments.
