Having the opportunity to be in Memphis at Christmas time a couple of years to see the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes at the FedEx Forum was great. First because the show was simply wonderful- the kicks, the costumes, the music- all of it was wonderful. The show is definitely able to put a person in a Christmas spirit.
After the show was over, I was discussing things that made Memphis known worldwide with the others who went to the show, and I said that I’d never been to Graceland. Well, the people I was with could not believe that and demanded that the situation be changed- immediately!
We hopped in the car and headed to Graceland quick, fast and in a hurry since we had dinner reservations at The Butcher Shop ( the restaurant is talked about for it’s good food, but I was not blown away).
While I did not get to tour Graceland, just seeing the outside was enough for me (for now). One day, I’ll tour Graceland (it’s on my bucket list!)
My companions laughed at how excited I was to get my picture taken with the Graceland sign and the car, but mostly laughed about my small-town existence since I’d never been to Graceland. While it’s been 2 years since my Christmas at Graceland, I know that one day I will be able to say that I visited Graceland properly.
