After enjoying a spectacular drive through a snow-blanketed landscape, we safely arrived at Colonial Williamsburg in early afternoon. We visited this historical landmark in the spring last year, and it looks vastly different at Christmas time! Each of the buildings is decked out in gorgeous natural swags and wreaths. I'm going to do my best the next few days to record most of them with my camera! The crowds were pretty extensive, which is pretty much expected for a Sunday.
After a delightful dinner tonight at the Williamsburg Lodge Tavern, we ducked outside to witness the Grand Illuminations fireworks display in the historical area. This celebration is held the first Sunday of each December. Oh. My. Gosh! It was unbelievably fun to be standing right below the spectacular fireworks on a brisk December night. I will remember this always, holding on to my sweetie, and whooping with each light burst in the dark sky. This is one event that lives up to the hype!
If you ever get a chance to visit this destination, no matter the season - GO!!!
