Christmas is coming, Christmas is coming!
Children are at their brightest during the Holiday season, don’t you think? Their faces are shining, their eyes are bright, they even seem to have an extra bounce to their already bouncy steps.
They get Christmas. They understand that this time of year the world around them seems to get a bit brighter, happier, and festive. And children thrive on it.
I have always tried to take time each Holiday season to bring our kids to festivities and events around the Holiday season that foster this love for the season. Holiday events seem to bring out the best in people, the kindest of the kind, and the giggles in even the most stern of people. I try to teach my children that the world and people in it are good. There are lots and lots of good people.
What better way then Holiday activities and events, right!?!
If you are able to make the trip to Mankato, MN you will find one of the best and brightest of the Holiday events…
The Mankato Holiday Lights event runs from November 27th until December 31st and features over 1 million LED lights you can walk or drive through. It is so much fun to watch children’s faces (okay, even adults!) when they see it!
When you go, be sure not to miss the ice skating, sleigh rides, or reindeer. Children of all ages love to see that!
And of course, smile and giggle at the joy and cheer from those around you. It’s contagious, people!
