Once you’ve made your holiday rounds, make some time to immerse yourself in one of the countless electrifying light displays. Take in the breathtaking sights and sounds synchronized to your favorite holiday tunes! Share a moment with that special someone underneath a stunning string of mistletoe, or gather with family and friends around a crackling holiday fire pit, where you can warm up while watching a choreographed light show or cook s’mores to perfection.

Hope for Today
When Jesus’ parents had fulfilled all the requirements of the Law of God, they returned home to Nazareth in Galilee. There the child became a strong, robust lad, and was known for wisdom beyond his years; and God poured out his blessings on him.
