From your overzealous neighbor with a full hitch of reindeer on his roof to the Saint Louis Zoo’s Wild Lights, elaborate holiday light displays are an ever-growing trend. This year, the Missouri Botanical Garden (missouribotanicalgarden.org) is getting in on the fun with its Garden Glow, the first instance of what promises to be a popular annual event. Opening November 23, the show will deck the Climatron, Kaeser Memorial Maze, Tower Grove House, and more with hundreds of thousands of lights. If you get chilly while strolling through the luminous wonderland, stop to make s’mores at one of the fire pits on the grounds.
