Dec. 18

I enjoy the cheeriness of Christmas lights. I think they really help to dispel the gathering darkness of this time of year. I enjoy driving through neighborhoods and seeing the creative displays. There are deer and Santas and snowmen and carolers and angels. Houses drip in white or blue icicle lights or are outlines in green and read and blue. One neighbor has a huge blue spruce in his front yard that he has completely covered with tiny lights. It's like a living Christmas tree. If you get a chance take a ride and revel in the light display. It's sure to bring a smile to your face.


  1. A special tradition growing up was Christmas Eve to drive around just to ohhh and ahhh over the lights. :O)

  2. Fabulous tradition. I love it. Have a great weekend!
