Last Friday night Courtney and I bundled up the kids, hopped in the van, and headed out for a couple of our annual Christmas traditions. Here are some of the things that I try not to miss doing each year during the Christmas season:
1. Living Nativity at Ephesus Baptist Church: This drive through Nativity is a lot of fun as, scene by scene, the Christmas story is acted for you, complete with real animals (and some fake ones too1).This year’s Living Nativity is Friday, December 17th through Sunday the 19th. It starts at 7pm and ends at 9pm. You may encounter a line, but be patient, you’ll get through and I find it worth any wait.
2. The Christmas lights on Green Level Rd. If you take High House Road to Hwy. 55, cross over 55 and High House becomes Green Level. Just a mile or so down the road is the biggest light and lawn ornament display I know of. Definitely worth the trip if you are a Christmas light junkie like I am.
3. Music and Christmas light display on Kilarney. Coming from the Cary YMCA, follow Cary Parkway until you hit the stoplight for Kilarney and turn right. I think it is the “Cobb family” that has a great lights and music display. They even have their own radio station – 92.1 I believe. Tune your radio and enjoy. It can get a little crowded though.
The lights off Green Level Rd. can get pretty crazy. I know the house you are talking about, but if you keep going there are a lot more out there. It looks like they are competing to see who can go the biggest.
You’re right Anthony! There are some more great lights down the road on Green Level. Unfortuanately, one of the better ones is not there this year b/c their house had to be torn down b/c I-540 is going right through their living room. Our family drove that way last Friday.
