- Jingle Bells Rock – Home Alone II
We went to see the Tanglewood Festival of Lights in Clemmons, North Carolina on Saturday night, the line was very, very long, bumper to bumper, and we had to wait for over 2 hours before seeing any Christmas Lights Displays. It was cold and a good thing that Bo didn’t make any reservation for a horse drawn carriage ride through the Tanglewood Festival of Lights, I think it would have been nice if it were warmer to experience the light show in the comfort of a traditional white carriage drawn by a Percheron horse, kind of pricey though because it costs $70 plus the Festival of Lights admission, as for us we only had to pay for the admission fee which was $14 per car.
The wait was definitely worth it, and a good chance that we might go back and see it again this year. We’ve family coming over for the New Year and I’m sure they’d want to see the lights, next time we know to head out earlier, we didn’t get there until 7 pm and saw the lights displays around 10:30 pm.

The birds flew across the road, real nice but hard for me to capture with my camera.
As a gardener myself, I absolutely love this one.
This is a real retired train that dated back to 1894.
