Are you feeling a little deflated after the holidays? After months of build up to the end-of-the-year festivities—all of the decorations, the lavish food and boisterous parties—hitting early January can feel like you just got smacked upside the head by reality. It's kind of like that day after college graduation when you realize you have to get a real job.
But the folks at Idaho Botanical Garden are helping us gently detox from the holidays. There's no need to go cold turkey, staring listlessly at the spot where the tree used to stand.
The holiday light spectacular known as the Winter Garden aGlow continues through Sunday, Jan. 6 at IBG. The garden has been a stalwart companion to Boiseans all season long—remaining open on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day—and it's not about to let us down now.
Not only will the garden's more than half-a-million lights blaze on through the weekend, but there will still be a few special vendors on hand to ease us off those high-fat diets we've been indulging in for the last few weeks. Both Dippin' Donuts and Old West Kettle Corn will be on hand Friday, Jan. 4-Sunday, Jan. 6, helping to feed the holiday weary masses.
Unfortunately, the holiday model express train will no longer be on display, but maybe that will help with the transition out of the holidays.
It has been a good, long season at Winter Garden aGlow, but that season ends soon, so if you missed the lights since they were turned on just after Thanksgiving, this is your last chance to take them in.
