Villa Zorayda’s Candlelight Tour

Christmas wouldn’t be the same without our family Christmas Light Drive.  Long before we were regulars for St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights, we drove through neighborhoods choosing the best-lit houses and listening to our favorite carols with cups of hot cider in eight pairs of hands.

Of course we still drive through our favorite neighborhoods with the kids!  But now that my hubby & I have our finger on the pulse of St. Augustine, Villa Zorayda has become part of our annual “grown-up” celebration.  Villa Zorayda takes Christmas decorating to a whole new level centering around their towering Christmas tree during the peaceful Candlelit Tour of this family home-turned museum.

    We love visiting St. Augustine at different times of the year. It is our vacation spot and our anniversary getaway weekend each year. However, we have not visited during the Night of Lights. We would love the chance to visit and win the candlelight tour.

    When I saw an advertisement for Nights of Lights in St. Augustine, I knew it was something I want to experience this holiday season! I have seen pictures of the event in the past and would love to capture some of my own memories.
