This is just a reminder to not miss the Christmas Light display at the home of Chad Barnard in Lebanon. I worked with Martha Barnard (his mom) at First American National Bank (later AmSouth) and she talked each year about the lights and how much her family enjoyed putting them up, and adding more displays from time to time.
I read that this is their 27th annual Christmas light show, featuring 2 million lights, 90 drive-through arches, more than 350 pieces of scenery, 15,000 feet of extension cords, and a Santa's home you can actually drive through. Oh, and there is a dancing snowman.
Our family has gone for several years. I don't know who enjoys it more, the children or the adults. We take a van and put as many family members who want to go and can go as the van will hold. The home is on 5 acres, and you drive into the driveway and around the property to look at the displays and figures. At the end of your drive is the Santa Claus house (which you drive through), and Santa (and sometimes his dog) will greet you and talk to the children for a few minutes. It's a lot of fun! You shouldn't miss it!
The location is 791 E. Old LaGuardo Road in Lebanon TN. Call 615-758-8300 for information.

We might see you there! We are going Wednesday night.
