From now until December 31st the Dallas Arboretum has turned itself into a magical Christmas wonderland for an event called the “12 Days of Christmas at Night” something anyone in or near Dallas will love.

During the event the 66 acre garden is decked out with nearly 1 million Christmas lights and the grounds are adorned with 12 different victorian style gazebos with each one depicting a different Christmas story. There’s also a Christmas village and a socially-distant and safe Santa Claus experience for the kids.

We all need a little magic in our lives right now and the Dallas Arboretum’s event will absolutely deliver. If you’re looking for a good place to get in some selfies and make memories this is also a great event for you.
