K is for Kalightoscope (and yes, I spelled it right)

     Christmas memories are always some of the best memories we have.  At least for me, anyway, because I love Christmas.   For one reason it means I get to spend time with my grandkids.  This memory is about Christmas 2010 when we planned something a little different and had the most wonderful time.

      Kalightoscope is a Christmas event held at the Galt House in Louisville.  It is a beautiful display of sculptures and lighting made in the form of enormous Japanese lanterns.  It is the most unusual and most gorgeous display I have ever seen.   Having seen all the advertising for it, I decided it would be fun to take the kids.  So, on the day they were coming home for Christmas we made arrangements to meet my son and his family at the Galt House.  

     First we oohed and awwed through the Kalightoscope display which was located on the Belvedere right outside the hotel.   It was the most amazing sight.  Upon exiting the display you walked right into the World Market Craft Fair set up in part of the hotel.   From there we explored the hotel which was beautifully decorated leading the way to the Gingerbread Village.   All of us were like kids in a candy store trying to take in the sights and be sure we didn't miss anything.  It was so much fun that I would like to share it with you so here are some of the pictures I took.






                                          


                       














 














     













Until next time...that's my view.

    1. It would be well worth it Jo. They also have a musical dinner show but we didn't stay for that. The hotel offers family packages if you wanted to spend the night. Check it out at www.christmasatthegalthouse.com
