Looks like we may be getting some snow here in Nebraska!

So far, it’s just been very cold – with temps hovering around 0 C/32 F. Despite the cold, we have been enjoying the Christmas feeling in the air.

We are staying in the Old Market area of Omaha, Nebraska. The city has taken great strides to revitalize its old downtown area with new restaurants, art galleries and boutique shops. It’s one of the few areas in the city where you can walk around without feeling like you are in suburbia.

Running through the middle of the Old Market is the Gene Leahy Park – a miniaturized version of Central Park at 9+ acres. Right now, the park’s trees are decorated with thousands of Christmas lights. It’s a delight to walk through at night – even a bit romantic despite the cold. Just bundle up and get out there to enjoy it!

Does it look like Christmas where you are?

Beautiful Christmas lights light up the night with the city's "skyscrapers" in the background.

You can even take a horse-drawn carriage ride through the Old Market in Omaha.

That looks much more Christmassy than where we are Joy! :) We've decorated the house though so we're feeling festive indoors.
