The most important tradition during Christmas is looking at the light displays put out by your neighbors or community.

The most important tradition during Christmas is looking at the light displays put out by your neighbors or community. Most of the Christmas spirit comes from the bright lights and the joy shared just from the lights.
I recently went to the 12 days of Christmas light display in Downtown Monroe set in in Childers Park. The lights were extremely interesting to see as it started with the first lyric of the 12 days of Christmas song, “a partridge in a pear tree”. It obviously was a bright yellow pear tree with cute pears hanging off of it, with leaves and one single partridge bird. Then as you walk the path you find two turtle doves, three french hens and so on. One that I thought was a little silly was the three french hens. At first I didn’t even realize the joke but there was an bright blue Eiffel Tower with hens on it. I thought it was just chickens until I was singing the song while just looking around, and realized the hens were French because they were on the Eiffel Tower. It was very cool to realize what was going to be next by singing the song.
Another thing I really liked was that the displays were so big that I had to stand at a distance to see it clearly. I think this is a great place to go with your family or your partner, it’s a very popular place for the local residents to take their kids to ride bikes and stroll around. The lights stay on until 9:00 pm nightly, but they aren’t leaving until December 31st, also it’s free of charge. If you like looking around for Christmas lights and singing, you should definitely go there before it closes.
