December 23: Zoo Lights.















The zoo really shouldn't sell a seemingly unlimited number of tickets for the train that runs through this attraction, considering the hundreds of people who spend hours in the freezing cold in line for the next ride, which may or may not come. I saw an amazing number of inconsolably upset children and gray-faced parents while I stood by the merchandise kiosks near the exits, which were doing big business selling consolation merchandise to the families who wound up not-riding the train -- even as hundreds more poured through the admission gates.

I liked the blue-light donkey.
