When we were back in the US for Christmas, we drove through the local light display. Li had never seen that American tradition and the folks in my hometown really go all out. It is held at the fair grounds in town which you can drive through at night and marvel at the lights and the Christmas music. The night we went through it was snowing as well – really turning it into a fairy land.
I haven’t spent a Christmas in China since my very first Christmas when I was teaching English and had to work the day before and after. I think going home to the twinkling lights hanging from the eaves and Christmas trees peeking through the windows is something that all of the stars hanging from the trees in Xintiandi can’t beat. Now that I’m back in China and resettled into my routine looking at the lights helps stave off the January blahs.
