One of these events is Zoo Lights at Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium. If you live anywhere near Tacoma then you have surely seen it advertised while watching your favorite shows and on posters and billboards all over the Puget Sound. You can purchase discounted tickets online and be sure to arrive early because parking can be a real issue. The zoo does not have many animal displays open but the lights are amazing. While roaming around the park in the dark you will come across venders selling hot cocoa, hot cider, light up toys and even a photo booth with a reindeer (not the actual animal). A trip there will certainly brighten your holiday spirit. If wondering around in the dark at the zoo isn’t your cup of tea don’t worry because Tacoma has more to offer.

A new store has opened in Freighthouse Square called Simply Enchanting and nothing says fantasy and magic like this shop. This is a place that will bring magic and amazement any time of the year but with Christmas here it’s a great time to brighten some faces and take part in a treasured moment of a life time. In the shop you will find an amazing assortment of fantasy and magical photos that you can have taken. Does your little one want to be a princess, prince, wizard, dragon, Viking or anything else they can dream up? Simply Enchanting can make their dreams come true. Also there you will find henna tattoos, hair clips and many other wonderful things.

No matter if you’re going to stay home and watch some of the wonderful shows on ABC Family, going to Zoo Lights, or making a trip to Simply Enchanting, make sure to share in some holiday magic everywhere you go!
