The annual lighting of the courthouse is something I look forward to every year, and if you’ve never been you’re totally missing out. I know it’s early – no one even has had leftover turkey sandwiches yet, I get it. But don’t let your hardheadedness cause you to miss out on a really spectacular evening. There will be carol singing, and holiday cheer out the ying-yang, over 70,000 lights all around the place, Santa will be there, there will be horse-drawn carriage rides and all the fun shops will be open for you to start marking those items off your Christmas shopping list, or so you can get some cocoa and a latte to warm you up during the festivities. It’s totally free to come and enjoy, so don’t miss out on this amazing annual event. I’ll be hanging out with Santa if you want your picture taken. You can bring me a latte, I prefer soy Irish Crème, thanks.
