Once upon a time, an enchanted forest intrigued children and adults alike and brought magic to the holiday season. Teddy bears beckon, elves are busy at work, penguins play in the snow, while Santa waits to hear holiday wishes. This fairy tale-like forest of glittering lights will dazzle the young and young-at-heart.
