A favorite December evening tradition in our family is hopping in the car, cranking up the heat, turning on Christmas music and driving around to see the Christmas lights in and near Harrisonburg, VA.  So many wonderful people take the time to light up their homes as a way to bless their community, and for that, we are grateful.  They may or may not realize the immense joy it brings to so many of the children in our area.  It’s a simple and yet fun activity to do with kids and it’s wonderful because, in most cases, you don’t have to brave cold weather.  Keep the kids in their jammies and just head out to enjoy these light shows!
