12 days of downtown

This year in Lincoln Nebraska, we are celebrating the 12 days of Downtown which acquired its name from a play about the 12 days leading up to Christmas by Fredrick Austin. This year the Capital City has enough money to have all 12 light up signs, one celebrating each day specifically. In the past there has not been enough money to obtain all of the signs, in 2010 there was only 8 distributed throughout the downtown area. This year our downtown is lit up by the partridge in a pear tree, two turtle doves, three french hens, four calling birds, five golden rings, six Geese-a-laying, seven swans a swimming, eight maids-a-milking, and nine ladies dancing. Listed below is the location for all of these wonderful lights, so get out with your families, friends, and loved ones to see these magnificently festive lights that are sure to get you in the holiday spirit.
