Every family has Holiday Traditions. Ours falls every year in the middle of the November for the first night of the Lights On The Lake along Onondaga Lake.
The light show runs until early January with thousands of cars attending each year. But the first night allows guests to walk to the end and back, approximately 4 miles. ( The second night allows guests to walk their dogs).
It’s cold. The older kids usually groan. But it’s the one thing we always do together. While the light show doesn’t change that much from year to year, I still find it more enjoyable to walk than drive.
Liam’s first year of speech was entertaining as he had fun naming everything that he recognized then on the way back he hid under the blanket and played Angry Birds…this kid.
