“Once under Spanish rule, this 16th-century city fetes its heritage. Single white candles once flickered from colonists’ windows; during Nights of Lights, the 144-square-block historic district twinkles with two million bulbs (each white, per city ordinance). November 19-January 31.” Downtown St Augustine’s Holiday Festival, the Nights of Lights, included by National Geographic in their Top 10 Places to see Holiday Lights begins November 17th, 2012.
