Like I mentioned last week, Omaha during the holidays is a magical time. It's a time when those days and nights where temperatures fall into the teens are treated with a smile, because there's always something miraculous waiting to be seen.
Recently, I trekked downtown after work one evening to take in the "Holiday Lights Festival" where the entirety of Gene Leahy Mall is covered in white lights. I know it's cheesy, but it gets me every year. Even though it's freezing outside, I love walking around in a world filled with that kind of light.
