Now that Thanksgiving is over, everyone’s attention is turning to the December holidays: Christmas, Chanukah, and Kwanzaa are just around the corner, as well as the Winter Solstice.
Michigan is chock full of great holiday traditions—all of them in one way or another brought to you by Michigan’s local energy providers.
Without affordable, reliable electricity, we wouldn’t have lights on our trees, hot food in our ovens, or warm homes in which to celebrate with family and friends. The streets of our towns would be dark after sundown. Most of the local venues where we browse for gifts, buy a hot cup of coffee, or take in a holiday movie would not be able to operate. There would be no holiday music coming through our car stereos 24 hours a day.
Let There Be Lights!
Of course, if there’s one thing we really love around the holidays here in Michigan, it’s big, bright light displays.
One of the best (and brightest) Michigan holiday traditions is the Battle Creek “International Festival of Lights,” where, among other activities, visitors and locals can enjoy the breathtaking holiday light display in downtown Battle Creek.
Of course, this isn’t the only Michigan holiday tradition that has to do with lights…far from it.
And then there is the “Walled Lake Tree Lighting,” and the “Wonderland of Lights” at the Potter Park Zoo in Lansing. And “Wild Lights” at the Detroit Zoo, Jackson County’s Night Lights Winter Wonderland, and the Wayne County Lightfest.
What did we tell you—we love our holiday lights here in Michigan! And we love the energy that powers them!
