2020 has been a challenging year for all. From statewide lockdowns, to virtual school, to social distancing, everyone has had to adjust to new behaviors and a new way of life when facing the pandemic. We’ve all missed out on traditions and events, whether it be a graduation, a wedding, a summer fair, or other social gatherings, we’ve all felt the lack of exciting activities to do, events to attend, or sights to see.
Luckily, there is one COVID-safe activity that allows you to enjoy some holiday cheer…admiring the holiday light displays! This is an excellent way for you and your family to get out of the house and spend some quality time together. You’ll feel like you’re in a whole new world with some of the dazzling light displays put on this year!
