Oh friends – it’s that time of the year again. Fantasy in Lights happens not too far away from us at Calloway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia. It’s really a must see for the Christmas season. Something about going out at night, riding the Jolly Trolley throughout the park, seeing all of the beautiful lights in awe. ❤ it – I mean heck what’s not to love right?
Fantasy in Lights at Calloway Gardens has been taking place for more than 20 years – it’s among the top 10 light shows in the world. Did you know that they have more than 8 million lights throughout the park this time of the year? All of that shiny holiday spirit – 🙂
So mom and dad go and got lucky this year on the Jolly Trolley. They got front row seats together. There they sat all bundled up in their coats, coffee cups in hand and anticipating a wonderful show like always. Trolley’s have a driver and a conductor that talks about what is coming up and what to expect. The night mom and dad went, their conductor was Samantha. She was nice wonderful lady.
There is one spot that the trolley rides a bit before the show begins. Samantha thought it would be a nice touch for all of us to sing Bing Crosby’s White Christmas. Major feat but they can do this! So they start, “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…” Well daddy goes bah-bah-bah-bah in his best Bing Crosby voice out of the blue. Mommy says it was like a wave of laughter that started in the front of the trolley and then rolled all the way back. Finally the conductor was laughing so hard she said, “We have to switch songs now.”
Shakes piggy head. Those two humans of mine can’t be trusted to even go out and watch the lights.
