The holiday season is in full swing, and for us here in the Myrtle Beach area, that means food, the ocean, yuletide parties, the ocean, pleasant temperatures, the ocean, shopping, the ocean, time with family and friends and, oh yeah, the ocean.

OK, we digress. The Atlantic is just so appealing on this beautiful December day, where the temperature is 70 degrees.

Oh yes, there's one other thing about the holidays that we love, and that's all the lights. And nothing will get us in the spirit of the season like Shadrack's Christmas Wonderland. Field, home of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, is now home to a wonderland of lights, music and Christmas spirit that will invoke wonderful holiday memories from even the oldest "child."

Come check out Shadrack's Christmas Wonderland nightly through Jan. 5, from dusk to 10 p.m.

You'll be glad you did.
