Yesterday as I was writing the article about the Scentsy Commons holiday lights being lit, I couldn't help but wonder what it is about Christmas lights that bring us so much joy. Children are amazed by it and adults go back to a much more innocent time in their lives. There is something magical about these displays and because they are here for a limited time I wanted to share the latest display to announce opening day.

The Idaho Botanical Garden will light up their Garden aGlow for the holiday season starting  November 26 - December 27. As always the garden will feature Santa and Mrs. Claus as well as a holiday express model train display. If 550,000 lights covering 14 acres sounds like a good time make your plans now and check out the social distancing & safety guidelines plus ticketing info below from their official website.
