Fox Valley Mall Christmas Lights - December 2021
This marks the second year in a row that we've booked a drive-thru Christmas lights experience. Last year, we were up in Northbrook to do what - at the time - I thought was a COVID-specific experience of driving through a zig-zag of Christmas lights. The whole need for social distancing coupled with the stir-crazy-ness of staying home provided a perfect combination to fall in love with the drive-thru light shows. This year, the group up in Northbrook (Let it Shine Lightshows), expanded to put up a show at the Fox Valley Mall parking lot in Naperville/Aurora. For my oldest's birthday party (Nat's family), we booked some tickets and went out there over the weekend.
I don't know if it was the music or the lights or the fact that were were doing this thing again, but I'll tell you that I had a smile on my face the whole time. Is it out-of-this-world? No. Is it a fun way to spend 30 minutes? Sure is.
