Electric Safari 

When: Dec. 17-Jan. 2 2011
Price: $5.25-$8.25

Annually during my formative years, my parents adopted a giraffe from Chicago's Brookfield Zoo. I always wanted to take the gangly creatures Christmas presents, but our relationships pretty much began and ended with a mailed photo and letter. This year, though, I can not only see nearly 1 million lights and 40-plus animated sculptures at Electric Safari at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo (4250 Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Road,, but I can fulfill my gifting desires. From 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., Dec. 17 through Jan. 2, the zoo is offering event admission discounts every night (except for opening night and Dec. 24, when the zoo closes early) for those who act as Secret Santas to its residents. Wish list items include coconuts, honey and duct tape. Because all creatures, great and small, love duct tape. Details on prices and other wish-list items at — Kirsten Akens
