It's been going on for decades. Every December, a St. Louis County park near us puts up elaborate Christmas light displays. It's big and must take an enormous amount of work. People drive slowly through a set route with many oohs and ahs. You can also ride on a horse-drawn carriage. We were booked for that tonight but it's so cold the rides were canceled for the horses' safety.
So we drove through with Ellie yesterday. Cute, a little cheesy and immensely popular. Mrs. C did the driving while I shot out the window with the new Fuji. It still feels like I'm talking to someone from rural Alabama or Scotland. It's the same language, technically, but not always intelligible.
