One of the very best parts of the holiday season is probably seeing your neighbors dress up their homes with colorful lights. The displays may feature a family of reindeer, or an entire show that's synced to a holiday song. This year, dash through the snow with your roommates and check out these drive-thru Christmas light experiences 2020 that are jingle bell rockin' their way into your city or town.
With coronavirus cases on the rise every day, hopping in your car and going to a drive-thru can be a fun and safe way to celebrate the season. Staying in your individual car allows you to adhere to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which note to avoid close contact with others who don't live in your household. These guidelines were updated on Nov. 27, 2020. For that reason, you'll want to ensure that the people who are in your car are within your household bubble.
To make this experience extra festive, gaze at the Christmas lights while wearing a set of merry pajamas, a Santa hat, or a snowman onesie. Brew a steamy travel mug of hot chocolate, and put it in your cup holder next to a bag of peppermint bark for when you get hungry. Most of these drive-thru experiences will likely ask you to switch your radio station to one that's playing "All I Want for Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey and "Like It's Christmas" by the Jonas Brothers. However, if they don't, be sure to queue up some of the classics either via your radio or a streaming service.
If you have the time, make a holiday-themed face mask you can wear as well, to get into the spirit of both 2020 and the Christmas season. While these drive-thru light experiences will make it easy to stay snow-cially distanced while soaking in the magic of the holidays, it's always a good idea to have a mask on hand whenever you jingle bell rock around your city or town.
