Welcome to the Benham family's My Old Kentucky Christmas website!

* * * * * *

It is with great joy that we bring back our Christmas Light Show for 2013! This year, our opening night on Sunday, December 1st will be an extra special night as we pay tribute to Bardstown's very own Officer Jason Ellis, EOW 5/25/2013.  There will be a special tribute as part of this opening night and we will be taking donations for Jason and Amy's sons, Parker and Hunter. Age appropriate toys along with gift cards will be accepted to help add a smile for the boys during this year of sadness and loss. 

We will also have special guests that night as members of our local police department make an appearance so that we can give them our thanks for their dedication and service to our community. Please join us for a very special evening on December 1st. The tribute to Officer Ellis will be done many times throughout the night so please visit us anytime between 6:00 and 10:00.
