We - along with all of Franklin and the surrounding counties - decided to go to the Columbus Zoo last night to see the Christmas lights. The mild temperatures for yesterday brought everyone out, or so it seemed. We sat in a very long line of traffic to get into the zoo at 5:30 pm. We left at 7:30 and the line was even longer, if that was possible. Despite the traffic, we had a great time, and with Christmas music playing on the radio, the time passed quickly, however, we all decided that if we hear the Elvis Presley version of "Blue Christmas" one more time, our heads just might explode!
It was interesting to see some of the animals very active. Since we are always at the zoo during the daytime, and usually during warm weather, it was nice to observe different animals as they seemed to come to life as the night wore on.
The evening couldn't possibly conclude without a stop for ice cream. Graeter's anyone?!
If you are looking for something to do as a family over the holiday season and you live in central Ohio, I highly recommend taking in the lights at the Columbus Zoo. The light and music show around the pond at the zoo entrance is simply magical!
