Chick-fil-A Wows Athens, Georgia with Half a Million Christmas Lights

The pandemic has put the whole world on pause, canceling almost all events and special gatherings. With the Christmas holidays here, people have still been finding ways to celebrate.

With that said, Chick-fil-A, a Christian restaurant, lit up the neighborhood in an effort to uplift the spirit of the community.

Their grand gesture includes a shining Christmas tree on the roof and a whole lot of Christmas lights draping each corner of the restaurant. The impressive annual display garnered them the name, "Light of Athens."

Alex Clark, the head of the Athens branch, came up with the idea to spread holiday cheer and hope. In November, locals gathered to see the lighting of the restaurant.

Although the restaurant will not be opening their dining rooms yet because of the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, customers will love to pass by their area. They can also tune into a specific radio station to listen to a special playlist arranged by the Chick-fil-A.

Light of Athens

Sheila Wright, a resident in Athens, shared how the Christmas display impacted her and her family.

"When I see the Lights of Athens, I have a warm, happy feeling of love and hope," she said. "They are wonderful and they are beautiful. The lights mean happy and sweet memories of my son."

She continued, "The past few years, my son, Travis Lamar Wright, brought me out here to see the lights. He was an outstanding, wonderful young man." Unfortunately, Travis was killed in a car crash in February 2018.

"The Lights of Athens give me a very warm feeling of him. It was our family tradition to see the lights every Christmas. Every time I see them, I have a smile on my face, a happy memory in my heart, but a tear in my eye."

Apparently, this was not Chick-fil-A's first time. They went viral for their display of Christmas lights in 2016. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
