    We love to go to Moultrie on Thanksgiving night for the lighting of the square. They have Santa arrive to light up the square and shops are open for shopping. It is beautiful and reminds you of something from a Hallmark movie. It is a perfect way to kick off the Christmas season!

    Chehaw Park in Albany usually has a nice light display. We haven’t been in a few years, but enjoyed it when we did go.

    Our family has always enjoyed the lights on the Moultrie Square. And the Fantasy in Lights at Callaway Gardens is so pretty. But I enjoyed reading about the things to do in Savannah. We may have to try them this year.

    Americus will have our downtown Christmas parade on December 4.

    I wish I could be in the South for Christmas one year. I’d love to experience a warm Christmas.

    Philly has lots of great events and museums to go to during Christmas. In fact, it’s hard to choose at times.

      You’d love it! but being a transplanted Yankee, I have to admit I miss some of the “white” in “Christmas”…
