If you’re still recovering from the delectable Thanksgiving meal and exhausted just thinking about all the decorating, shopping, cooking (and eating), visiting, partying, and all the other -ings that come with December, perhaps you can take a break, climb in the car with a loved one or friends, and enjoy the deep breaths that come with “oohs” and “aahs” in abundance of a holiday light display.
