Most people are very courteous of not blocking driveways. I was there this season and last. We waited on Van Wagoner Road for two hours to see the light show. If your mom really wanted to leave, she could have. People would have given her plenty of room; not to mention the line was moving every nine minutes.
Did she pull up to the end of her driveway? Obviously not.
It’s a good excuse not to go to something she really doesn’t want to attend, but to use the light show as an excuse: shame on you.
The show is far from a nuisance. It’s a wonderful night out for free, except the price of your gas, your time and whatever donation a person chooses to give. It is well-organized from beginning to end. It’s the best holiday show to come to town in forever.
How about instead of mom having dinner out with friends, you arrange for a mother-daughter outing to the light show? You might not be so quick to condemn it and your headache will disappear.
When you have lemons, make lemonades.
