John and I took the day off yesterday to run a few errands and then spent the day at Silver Dollar City. We hold season passes and the festival that is held each year from the beginning of November thru the end of the year is one of our favorites. An Olde Time Christmas is an onslaught to your senses, for sure! They put up over 4,000,000 lights throughout the City. Some of them are on during the day and some only come on after sunset. Yesterday was a bit foggy - you can see in the picture that the fog came down off the clouds pretty low. There were probably fewer than 400 people in the entire park! We are so used to seeing thousands that yesterday was a real treat! No waiting in lines for any of the shows, no waiting in lines for food, no waiting in lines for the bathroom, no waiting at all! We saw the two main shows that we like ( a musical version of A Christmas Carol and a Living Nativity) and then shopped a bit, the Mill and the Candy shops are both musts for us! Then we saw the lighting of the enormous, 5 story Christmas Tree in the main square and then toodled on home. Here is one of the trees they place throughout the park - just lovely!
