No December seems complete without a trip to Leavenworth, WA for their annual Christmas Lighting Ceremony, especially since it is a great place to go with my son.
This year the Christmas Lighting Festival seemed even more special as friends from my high school days were there performing. With the temperature hovering around 20 degrees F and a frozen fog hovering in the air, it was cold (very cold!) as the members of the Bellingham High School Alumni Band took the stage for their performance. Even bundled up warmly, without these warming fires scattered around the main street of Leavenworth, the audience would have been uncomfortably cold.
While there were heaters on the stage, it still felt cold to the band members as they performed.
