Christmas is just around the corner, and there’s so many festive activities that you and your family can enjoy for the Holidays! Whether you haven’t tried watching Christmas lights before, or if it’s a family tradition, here are some places you should definitely check out before the festivities end.
Reading’s Christmas on the Mountain
Set on a park, this is the perfect place for kids to marvel at the glowing colors and inflatable characters. Brightly lit trails wind all through the park, so don’t worry about not seeing where you’re going. If you get cold along the walk, there are stands with hot cocoa and snacks to satisfy your munchies as well. And as with most Christmas attractions, kids can visit Santa, and parents can capture the moment for a mere $5! It’s a simple but highly enjoyable experience for all to have.

Twas the Lights Before Christmas
If you’ve ever seen those videos of Christmas lights dancing in sync to music, that’s exactly what Calvary Church has to offer for your entertainment! Upon arrival, you tune to a certain radio station, sit back, relax, and enjoy an exciting show right in the comfort of your car. The first song of the show is in honor of the recent Star Wars movie, while the rest are popular Christmas carols. There’s even a number by the ever-popular Pentatonix. But the fun doesn’t end there. After the light show, you can drive over to The Barn and enjoy a complimentary cup of hot cocoa and a cookie. There’s even a bonus for the kids! If they’re small enough, they can sit in an X-wing ship and enjoy a simple simulation of what it’s like to be a space pilot. Overall, I’d say this is my personal favorite light show in Berks.

*Their last show date will be on the 22nd
Koziar’s Christmas Village
Having started in the humble beginnings of a small decorated family home in 1948, Koziar’s Christmas Village has become a world-renowned attraction for thousands to marvel at every year. With a dazzling display of over one-half million lights and decor, families can spend their night walking through the magical village and feeling a part of a “Winter Wonderland.” There’s also a variety of activities you can enjoy in addition to viewing the ornate buildings and landscape! Visit Santa on Santa Claus lane, have some freshly baked treats from the country kitchen, and check out their handmade train platform.

Don’t forget, Christmas isn’t all about the shopping and presents. It’s also about making memories with the ones you love.
