This is the time of year when it is normal to decorate your house in lights. Blue lights, white lights, blinking lights. People even drive around just to look at all the lights. And sometimes, people even pay to see them. Where can you go to see the Holiday Lights this year? Two of the most famous and spectacular lights display that are closest to our apartments at Burnam Woods, Chatham Gardens and Old Orchard are Miracle on 34th Street in Baltimore City and Symphony of Lights in Columbia.
Miracle on 34th Street
Through January 1, 2013
One block in Hampden puts on a Christmas light display that is surely visible from space. Neighbors in this block of rowhouses string Christmas lights across 34th Street. Inflatable snowglobes, musical trains and blinking angels adorn homes. A few even allow visitors to peek inside. The lights are on every night from Thanksgiving weekend to January 1st, including all night on Christmas Eve. FREE.
Symphony of Lights in Columbia Symphony Woods
Through January 2, 2012
Symphony of Lights is a spectacular drive-through display of more than 75 animated and stationary holiday lights. All proceeds from the Symphony of Lights benefit the services of Howard County General Hospital
Merriweather Post Pavilion
