A Night of a Thousand Candles

A night of a thousand candles

I was a little overwhelmed last month with closings and I had asked my fiance’ to help me with my blogs.  Well, I am sincerely ashamed that I didn’t read his blog sooner.  It literally brought me to tears and smiles all at the same time.  Life goes by way too quick.  He had written this blog days ago and I was a little “too” busy to take the time to read it.  Life needs to be embraced every moment possible.  I hope you all enjoy!

“My how time flies! It has occurred to me that it really and truly is that time of year again. The holidays are among us! As the decorations are pulled from storage and the meals are being planned, I am reminded of one of the most significant events that I look forward to ever since I had the opportunity to experience it for myself three years ago.The Brookgreen Gardens Annual “Nights of a Thousand Candles.” It seems like it  was only yesterday that a special someone invited me to this spectacular event. She told me that is one of those special events that truly inspires an individual to appreciate the holiday season. As I reminisce, I remember that chilly December evening. We all dressed warm with our peacoats and sweaters. You see its that time of year where there is a chill in the air and at times a brisk wind. Never the less I remember the feeling of warmth with excitement and love. As we loaded up the car, My friend, her three children, and myself included began a tradition that now is something of epic proportions. You see now we are engaged to be married. The children have grown. However we continue to attend this magical event and all of the wonderful things that Brookgreen has to offer. Whether it is a warm cup of cider or the delicious food, there is always something for everyone. I remember the sounds of hand bells ringing and carolers singing. The beautiful display of countless sparkling lights as well as the 5500 hand lit candles spread all throughout this beautiful majestic landscape. The popularity of this event has increased to the dates that are as follows: December 5-7,12-14, &19-21. Also Brookgreen Gardens has been named by TripAdvisor as one of the top ten public gardens in the United States. If you are unable to attend this holiday event understand that this historic wonder is open year round and has so much to offer for all ages. “The beautiful sculptures and art, boat cruises, and is he only accredited zoo on the carolina coast where you have the ability to see native animals in their natural habitat. There are tours, programs, and exhibits for all ages”.  Brookgreen Gardens.
