Sparkling Once Again
I'd like to sincerely apologize for the recent "blackout" that Festive Lights experienced. I truly appreciate the patience you've all had while I found the time to get things back into working order. That said, Festive Lights are glowing again, and just in time for the new holiday season. I wish the merriest of times to all, and hope that Festive Lights will once again add that extra bit of holiday cheer so many have appreciated in years past.
