You Electrify My Life: Holiday Lights at Jones Beach

Even after New Year's Day, I am always trying to prolong the holiday season! Last night, I went to check out the Holiday Lights at Jones Beach.

Although it was always a big hit, the Holiday Lights hadn't been up at Jones Beach for years. Hurricane Sandy didn't help matters, either. So, my family was super excited to see the lights were back up this year!

There are beach santas, 12 days of christmas, and toys from across the ages. I am so happy the lights are back, and can't wait to see even more as more sponsors sign up next year!

My tips for the Holiday Lights at Jones Beach:

-Arrive early (after dusk, before dinner time for the least amount of cars)
-Dress your best for Santa in the Christmas Village! (Photos are cheap!)
-Be careful of steps in the pitch black of the Christmas Village (I may or may not have gracefully faceplanted last night. YMMV)

What do you do to prolong the Christmas and holiday spirit? What traditions have come back?
