Sherwood’s Trail of Holiday Lights

Like last year, my 3 wishes for what I’d classify as a wonderfully awesome Christmas are eating a homecooked meal, baking treats, and exploring cities. I musta made it on Santa’s “good” list for a 2nd straight year ’cause I got all three again! I’m only covering the “exploring” part in this post.

Jeff and I went to Sherwood, Arkansas (northeast of Little Rock) to see their Enchanted Forest “A Trail of Holiday Lights”.

At the entrance, we were warmly greeted with “Merry Christmas” by a few people and handed brochures. (Did I mention it was super cooooold and these nice folks were troopers for working on Christmas?! ) Someone suggested turning off the car’s headlights to view the displays better. Candy canes were offered at the exit and we didn’t pass ’em up either. Donations were graciously accepted too.

Don’t tell but Jeff was clickin’ & drivin’ throughout this 1.5 mile display of holiday themed lights. (He did a good job too considering his camera was flashing low battery while happily clicking away, and observing good driving rules like not rear-ending the car in front of us ’cause it was pitch black on the road). If word gets out, I’ll deny everything. :p

Each display was sponsored by a company or purchased by the donations through the years.

Sherwood’s Enchanted Forest is a must-see during the holidays.
