That’s because now through Jan. 18, the small northern Georgia city is transformed into a holiday spectacle with Dahlonega’s Old Fashioned Christmas. Described as “a magical time of year in Dahlonega and throughout Lumpkin county,” visitors can enjoy a variety of events this season, including carriage rides, Christmas lights and a visit with Santa Claus.

“Enjoy the quaint local antique shops and cafes before getting warm by the fire in your nearby cabin in the woods,” TravelPulse wrote.

Events traditionally include the ceremonial lighting of the Christmas tree and a Christmas parade. However, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the lighting ceremony will not take place this year. But visitors don’t have to worry about missing out on the twinkling display. Christmas music will play throughout the day and the lights will be on daily through January 10th.

Meanwhile, the Christmas parade will go on through the streets of Dahlonega’s Historic District on Dec. 12 rain or shine. Those watching are asked to practice social distancing.

Australian David Richards holds the Guinness World Record for the largest display of Christmas lights on an artificial tree. A 15-year-old named Albert Sadacca is said to have popularized Christmas tree lights. Lighting a Christmas tree could cost as much as $300 in 1900. That's $2000 in today's dollars. Each year, 20 million Christmas lights are recycled in Shijiao, China.","credits":,"taxonomy":"tags":["text":"China","text":"Christmas","text":"Christmas Lights Man","text":"Christmas lights","text":"David Richards","text":"Guinness World Record","text":"Shijiao","text":"Thomas Edison","text":"anvato","text":"brightcove","text":"holiday","text":"light display","text":"lights","text":"rct-video","text":"rct-video-kw","text":"wibbitz"],"primary_site":"type":"site","_id":"/news/atlanta-news","version":"0.5.8","name":"Local News","path":"/news/atlanta-news","primary":true,"sites":["type":"site","_id":"/news/atlanta-news","version":"0.5.8","name":"Local News","path":"/news/atlanta-news","primary":true],"primary_section":"type":"section","_id":"/news/atlanta-news","_website":"ajc","version":"0.6.0","name":"Local News","path":"/news/atlanta-news","primary":true,"sections":["type":"section","_id":"/news/atlanta-news","_website":"ajc","version":"0.6.0","name":"Local News","path":"/news/atlanta-news","primary":true],"seo_keywords":["China","Christmas","Christmas Lights Man","Christmas lights","David Richards","Guinness World Record","Shijiao","Thomas Edison","anvato","brightcove","holiday","light display","lights","rct-video","rct-video-kw","wibbitz"],"promo_items":"basic":"type":"image","version":"0.5.8","credits":,"caption":"World of Illumination's brand-new holiday theme park is coming to Six Flags White Water in Marietta.","url":"https://d1fegwn2wjh0cs.cloudfront.net/11-18-2020/t_7a1e4cc456914ff19068c0e7d1794b9e_name_https___www_ajc_com__rw_Pub_p7_AJC_2016_11_25_Images_photos_medleyphoto_12278384.jpg","width":1920,"height":1080,"related_content":"redirect":[],"basic":[],"planning":"scheduling":,"revision":"published":true,"syndication":"search":false,"source":"source_id":"129fbf51-b8e4-45f0-8958-6af73a80e6c2","system":"Methode","edit_url":"https://ajc.arcpublishing.com/goldfish/video/5ef7e6c0cff47e00019d57a3","distributor":"mode":"reference","reference_id":"8aec2b8c-455c-4816-903d-79fc8fdf8019","tracking":"in_url_headline":"facts-about-holiday-lights","additional_properties":"subsection":"Local News","videoCategory":"anvato","videoId":"5ef7e6c0cff47e00019d57a3","vertical":false,"embedContinuousPlay":true,"imageResizerUrls":[],"advertising":"allowPrerollOnDomain":false,"autoPlayPreroll":false,"enableAdInsertion":false,"enableAutoPreview":false,"enableServerSideFallback":false,"forceAd":false,"playAds":false,"playVideoAds":true,"videoAdZone":"wpni.video.oodef","disableUpNext":false,"videoAdZone":"wpni.video.oodef","3MG2CS7L6WUNQYUK3X3VDBUSKA":"11-18-2020/t_7a1e4cc456914ff19068c0e7d1794b9e_name_https___www_ajc_com__rw_Pub_p7_AJC_2016_11_25_Images_photos_medleyphoto_12278384.jpg","platform":"desktop","playVideoAds":true,"playlist":"/news/atlanta-news","useVariants":false,"has_published_copy":true,"playlistTags":["/news/atlanta-news"],"firstPublishedBy":"name":"Kiersten Willis","email":"[email protected]","lastname":"","anglerfishArcId":"3MG2CS7L6WUNQYUK3X3VDBUSKA","isWire":false,"gifAsThumbnail":false,"published":true,"product_affiliate_code":"4804576","lastPublishedBy":"name":"Kiersten Willis","email":"[email protected]","lastname":"","permalinkUrl":"/news/local/facts-about-holiday-lights/sjDmku7AJM7OwDKPj63MWI/","forceClosedCaptionsOn":false,"doNotShowTranscripts":false,"publicationEndDate":"2029-12-08T16:17:34Z","duration":50267,"video_type":"clip","streams":["height":540,"width":960,"filesize":10702652,"stream_type":"ts","url":"https://d189dz6wvushk1.cloudfront.net/wp-ajc/2020/06/28/5ef7e6c0cff47e00019d57a3/3234e9a1-ec0b-4368-ba4a-656dd20b1b55/t_c8e51b6a714d475690ea805241dc4378_name_191211_4804576_5_facts_about_holiday_lights_1576081067_1000/master.m3u8","bitrate":1500,"provider":"mediaconvert"],"subtitles":,"promo_image":"type":"image","version":"0.5.8","credits":,"caption":"World of Illumination's brand-new holiday theme park is coming to Six Flags White Water in Marietta.","url":"https://d1fegwn2wjh0cs.cloudfront.net/11-18-2020/t_7a1e4cc456914ff19068c0e7d1794b9e_name_https___www_ajc_com__rw_Pub_p7_AJC_2016_11_25_Images_photos_medleyphoto_12278384.jpg","width":1920,"height":1080,"embed_html":"
