Our moms rock! They know the best places to take the kids any time of the year, so it’s no surprise that they have their favorite light displays to take the kids to. Here they are:

* Winter Lights Festival (http://www.gaithersburgmd.gov/leisure/winter-lights-festival). This event runs nightly through January 1, except for December 25.

* Garden of Lights at Brookside Gardens (http://www.montgomeryparks.org/events/garden-of-lights/). It runs until January 1, except for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Go earlier in the day and check out the train display.

* Zoolights at the National Zoo (https://nationalzoo.si.edu/events/zoolights). It also runs until January 1, except for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but also includes special nights.

* Festival of Lights (http://dctemplelights.lds.org/). This event runs every night through January 1, and includes nightly performances indoors, as well as Christmas trees decorated in international themes.

We hope you enjoy this holiday season with your families!
