Christmas must-go and must-see places beckon to holiday celebrators.

Uproarious Thanksgiving Day came to an end, but the winter holiday season hasn't ended just yet.
There will be an array of evening drive-through events held around Metro Atlanta displaying hundreds of thousands of magical lights for the public to enjoy.
Marking its 24th season, Lake Lanier Islands Resort is inviting locals to enjoy evenings of Magical Nights of Lights, running nightly through Dec. 31st. While riding a special car for cruising through the magical lights, you can also listen to Christmas carols to liven up the atmosphere with the new free Lake Lanier Islands Radio App.
Magical Nights of Lights is becoming more than just Christmas fun.
“My family is looking to enjoy the lights as part of our Christmas Day gathering,” said Susan Fingaton, Buford. “The Magical Nights of Lights is more than a night driving for miles through gleaming and moving lights.”
Candlelight Christmas at Blitmore is scheduled from now through Jan. 7th. 60 decorated Christmas trees are found inside the Biltmore House and 135,000 LED and mini lights light up the Estate. There are also
local choirs and small musical ensembles stationed in the Winter Garden. Miles of fresh garlands, colorful ornaments, and wreaths draped throughout the house let off a nostalgic yuletide fragrance.
Christmas theme at Biltmore varies every year.
“This year’s Christmas theme is a Vanderbilt Christmas Celebration,” said the Estate in a press release. “Décor trends toward the opulent to create a sense of the Gilded Age while incorporating elements that nod to George Vanderbilt’s legacy in Western North Carolina.”
How about Callaway Gardens’ Fantasy in Lights?  It has been named one of the “Top 10 Places to See Holiday Lights” by National Geographic Traveler magazine. Being set ablaze until Dec. 30th in Pine Mountain, Fantasy in Lights includes 15 larger-than-life holiday scenes and 8 million lights running a course of about five-miles. Almost all of the lighting frames are custom-built and took about 3,900 hours to install. Visitors can travel through a journey of sparkling lights by Jolly Trolley or in the comfort of their own vehicles.
Christmas Village is an additional perk. It is a 22,000-square foot indoor area with specialty food items, seasonal refreshments, unique gifts, classic toys, Santa, and an assortment of decorations on sale.
Fantasy in Lights would be one of the best options to go for as a yuletide celebration.
“We see about 160,000 to 180,000 people in November and December every year,” explained Rachel Crumbley, a spokesperson for Callaway Gardens, in a press release. “It motivates our team to have a greater light show every year. Fantasy in Lights will offer visitors a wonderful experience not soon forgotten.”
