Unraveling, testing and hanging 2 million lights is no small feat. But it was done for the 24th consecutive year as a small crew prepped the annual Wildlights exhibit to open Nov. 16 at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.

The holiday season is filled with tradition. Many families have their own unique customs, and those traditions create lasting memories for adults and children alike.
While the holiday season is a time of joy, giving and religious reflection, it also can be a time of excess. Holiday parties, meals brimming with more food than the average person can consume, wrapping paper tossed aside after minimal usage, and shoppers venturing for miles in cars in search of presents can all prove wasteful.
Many Christmas traditions are older than some celebrants might think. The tradition of lighting up a Christmas tree, for example, dates back to the days before Christmas lights.
