Zoo Lights!

Last night, to celebrate the first day of Hanukkah, my roommate and I and our friend finally got to visit Zoo Lights in the Lincoln Park Zoo. It’s like a night circus. There are thousands of people in very good moods milling around; smiling people in Santa hats distributing spiced wine or hot chocolate at various festive bodegas; Christmas music blaring; and of course the whole place is decked to the nines. It was glorious. I wish I’d taken more pictures!

I talked about Zoo Lights once before on the blog, and I’m happy to say it lived up to my expectations! We were so giddy and full of the proverbial Holiday Spirit, and no one could be annoyed by our cheer because they all had it too.

It would be a great place to go on a date, too…and free if you bring your own hot drinks! (Trust me, you’ll want them.)

Anyone else been to Zoo Lights yet? What are you doing to get yourself in the mood (for holidays, that is)?
