Walking in a winter wonderland

re you tired just thinking about a hectic holiday season? Well, at least you don’t have more than 20,000 people dropping by.

Each winter, Angela Micai ’97 and her family set up a “Christmas in Wonderland” display in their side yard. The exhibit features scenes of Mickey Mouse, Barney, 20,000 miniature lights and a live appearance from Santa Claus himself.

Thousands of people journey to the family’s Hamilton Township home each year. Many of them make the Wonderland a family tradition. “Last year, I had to park three blocks from my house it got so busy,” says Micai.

The Wonderland opens everyday from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. December 1 through New Year’s day. Neighbors and volunteers help the family decorate and operate the Wonderland.

And despite the difficulties of putting the display together, Micai says her family doesn’t mind. “When you see children smiling and their parents happy, it makes our Christmas special.”

This will be the 17th year the Micais have set up their Wonderland. They don’t charge admission, but they do request a donation for charity. So far, they’ve raised over $30,000. “This is our way of proving Christmas is still a giving holiday,” says Micai.
