I hate how it gets dark so early in the day, however, it gives us a chance to check out everyone’s holiday lights AND you don’t have to stay up late.

If you are looking to take a cruise searching for the best decorated homes to visit, use the City of Joliet Holiday Lights Map. 

Earlier this week, we checked out Aurora’s Festival of Lights at Pilcher Park.  I took this picture on Monday night.

AND with how great this weekend’s weather is, I know many will be checking out the Morton Arboretum’s Illumination event.
