Favorite Christmas Lights

Posted November 30, 2006

Where do you go to see your favorite Christmas lights? Raleigh author Ann Fearrington took me on a magical tour several years ago with my children. Ann has a best selling children's book about her favorite Christmas light displays in the Raleigh area. We went to various spots including Cameron Village, Crabtree Valley, downtown Cary and yes, WRAL. Ann loves our 300 foot tower which becomes a giant Christmas tree this time of the year. We'll flip the switch and turn on the tower lights tomorrow night at 7:30PM. I hope you will all join us as we get into the holiday spirit here at WRAL. Also, let us share our favorite holiday light display locations. What house, what neighborhood, what place do you and your family enjoy the most this time of year? Also, it would be helpful to give some general directions. Thanks!
