The Lights of Christmas at Warm Beach Camp is one of those experiences that stays with you. My husband and I started going before we had kids, and now with our twins we’ve been making it a part of every holiday season. I remember pushing the mammoth double stroller around the lights, wondering if our twin babies were even noticing?
Well we drove into Warm Beach Camp this year and my daughter said, “Do you remember when we came here last year?” It was one of those quiet mommy victories, to know that at 4 years old she already has Christmas memories.
The Lights of Christmas is close to where we live, but over the years we’ve met people who drive for hours to get there. There are often a lot of people, but there’s a happy, positive mood to the whole 15 acres that makes me feel good to keep bringing my kids there. With over 1,000,000 lights, there’s a lot to see, plus shows, places to eat, kids’ activities, and shopping. We tend to just stroll around, finding our favorite lights and displays, and noticing new things, too.
The holidays are a really busy time for most families. It’s easy to say we’ll let things go, maybe not make those six dozen cookies or four more stops for Christmas gifts. But we keep going back to The Lights of Christmas because our holiday traditions are important to me, and like a lot of moms, my favorite thing to do around the holidays is make memories with my family.
Happy Holidays from all of us!
