What better way to ring in the holidays than with a “Holidays Around the World” themed Christmas parade? Every year since I was a kid, I’ve watched the Thanksgiving Day parade on television; I especially loved seeing all the floats and giant balloons. While I still enjoy a parade, it’s even better because I get to watch the wonder in my kids’ eyes as they enjoy everything there is to see.

A Yearly Tradition – Let’s Go See the Lights in Rogers!

Posted by Mel Lockcuff on Mon, Nov 24, 2014

Every year decorations appear out of nowhere, lights begin to twinkle, and Christmas trees sparkle in all their festive glory. Traditions are a huge part of Christmas for my family. Some of our traditions involve making our family recipe for cutout sugar cookies, putting up the tree and sharing memories with each ornament that goes on the tree, putting our jammies on and watching a great Christmas movie (like Christmas Vacation), and more. We have one really special tradition as the days draw closer to Christmas. It involves a warm cup of hot chocolate and sparkling, glittering lights.
