December, 2019: Holiday Home Tour
Some of my favorite things at Christmas time are the lights and decorations. On my podcast, Up Front with Cabarrus Magazine, I recently interviewed Jonathan Coleman, of the Charlotte Motor Speedway, and we agreed there is something about the ambience of the season that fills us with awe and wonder, even when nothing much else seems to make an impression. It seems that has been the case since the invention of the lightbulb.
My oldest son was recently sharing with me that during the time when the electric light was still a novelty, “electric parks” were created for the public. These parks would be areas where the public could come and see for themselves this new invention – walk under them and gaze in awe as their light never blew out.
It is with that same awe I admire Cabarrus County during the Holidays. Seeing the warmth of the lights, combined with the festive decorations, combined with the rich history of our area, make for the perfect outing to enjoy the season with family and friends.
So, rather than tell you about it, we decided this was the perfect issue to show you. We’ve taken all the space in our publication, normally set aside for feature articles, and used it to demonstrate the beauty and wonder of this area during this most special time of year. We hope you enjoy these remarkable pictures, from Michael A. Anderson Photography, but we also encourage you to venture out on your own and see the sights for yourself.
With so much turmoil and conflict in the world. Don’t we all deserve a few minutes to remember what it was like to be young, innocent and unjaded by life? Perhaps it will remind us that the problems of this life are temporary, but the promise this season represents is eternal.
