Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays 2017

Its the holiday season and one of the highlights out here in US has been the amazing holiday lights! We did get a glimpse of it during our RoadTrip in Thanksgiving holidays at Alabama, however this time we finally managed spend much more time photographing the Christmas and Holiday lights at Life University in Marietta, Georgia.

Its an annual event called “Lights of Life”, and takes place every evening from Thanksgiving to New Years eve. The event features over a million lights decorated in and around the university campus.

There are numerous static and animated decorations along with a huge rendition of Santa Clause and his sleigh – one of the tallest display in Southeast. One can either choose to view the lights just driving through the campus or explore on foot (we did suggest the later).

Here are some of the images we managed to capture from this beautiful event.


And here is a video of some of the animated decorations

So if you are around Atlanta right now or will be here before New Year’s Eve, this place is a must visit!

Merry Xmas & Happy Holidays to everyone 🙂
