Trail of Lights
EmilyAnn Theatre and Gardens lights up for Christmas.
This is the twentieth year that locals and tourists are welcome to
meander the paths through the spectacular lights
and displays of holiday joy, wonder, imagination, and whimsy.
"The mission of the EmilyAnn is to reinvest in the dignity of the human spirit through the performing arts, the beauty of nature and community fellowship.
The EmilyAnn was founded in 1998 to celebrate the life of Emily Ann Rolling by providing a permanent home for Shakespeare Under the Stars,
a program in which Emily excelled as an actress and costume designer."

Light - the removal of darkness, the first work of the Creator,
symbolically represents goodness, favor, and truth.
This season I hope to sprinkle a trail of lights through my actions.
Offer a word of comfort to strengthen the weary.
Remember to be kind always.
Proclaim my gratitude for what is good.
Bestow favor to the unfavored.
Speak truth with love.
How can you a create a trail of lights?
