The Columbus Zoo was transformed into a winter wonderland with a thousand brightly-coloured Christmas lights, in every colour. Unfortunately, I choose the coldest evening of the year to see this display; it was one of those evenings where the moisture on your breath would immediately turn to ice around your nose. Brrr! The lights hung from trees all around the zoo walkways and reflected off the pond. In addition to the hanging lights on the trees, there were several animal-themed lights set up along the walkways. The aquarium, reptiles, and other animals could still be seen, so it is a great way for families to go to the zoo in the winter.
