We really like holiday lights.

Happy Holidays to our blog-friends across the globe.

We really like the lights we see at this time of year and have been going out for decades to see them. Here are a few from this year.

One day, we just drove to a nearby neighborhood. The lights were very nice but nearby was the best set of neighborhood lights of all. You will have to take my word for it, a simple shot down the street does not do it justice. A very large community that goes on for blocks just has whatever decorations the homes chose to put up, but all are synchronized to music one can listen to on your car radio. I should have made a video. 😥

“Conservatory Aglow” is a professional show each year at the Franklin Botanical Gardens and Conservatory.

Getting cold, we went into the conservatory where there were more holiday botanical displays rather than lights.

The most spectacular display, however, is at the Columbus Zoo “Wild lights.” The zoo has 580 acres of which 140 have exhibits for visitors. There are six geographic regions: Asia Quest, North America and Polar Frontier, The Shores, Australia and the Islands, African Forest and Heart of Africa. We were tired after just two, North America and Africa.


About ralietravels

Ray and Alie (Ralie) are a retired couple who love to travel. Even during our working years, we squeezed a trip in whenever we could, often when we had to stretch the budget to do so. We have been fortunate to vacation in all 50 states, all the provinces of Canada and one territory and a little more than 50 countries. We like to drive, but we particularly love to travel back roads to find unusual sights, people, and experiences.

  2. I love houses that are decorated for Christmas. When our kids were small, we went with them to look at the lights – during this time, „Christkind“ (= Santa Claus in southern Germany) came and brought the presents!
    Kindest regards and Merry Christmas!
