Light up the Night

I love the festive lights of the holidays.

Several communities get in the spirit and some have award-winning displays, that dazzle locals and tourists alike.  Our little country town is one of those award winning communities.   Each November through to the new year we enjoy a large display of holiday lights in the park by the river.  Folks can drive through and enjoy the lights, which are always a crowd pleaser.

Many residents also take part and light up the darkness of winter with festive strings of lights  

We enjoy piling the kids in the van and taking a little tour around the town to see what other families have done.  Some homes are simple, while others are much more elaborate.    I like to the homes, which have strung lights a long their eves-troughs, and on their double garage doors -  it makes their home look like a gingerbread house.


Some of my favourite lights are those twinkling on snow covered evergreens.    I am a big fan of the new soft LED lights which are popping up everywhere this season.  I will have to keep an eye open for some on sale on boxing day, and put them away until next year.

I know some people think it is too expensive to run lights.  Yet, I still love them, and feel they brighten our neighbourhoods during the holidays.  Do you string Christmas lights on your home and property?  If so, are you a minimalist, or do you go all out with the holiday decorations?

There'll be no lights in our house this Christmas. No Christmas tree! Stacey is spending Christmas with her bf and his family, I will be travelling to spend Christmas with my Dad and my brothers. My husband - he'll be going to his family. I guess divorce does that! But next year, when I have my own, new home-, next year I'll have lights!

I really wanted to put up lights for the first time this year but my hubby never got around to it. Next year for sure!

I LOVE lights and always enjoy putting them up. I'm like my dad, and purchase something new every year to add to it hehe :)

We bought our lights second hand and only run them for the month. I love them. My neighbour has the bright lights that flash lol Glad we do not live across the road from him

I love to look at the lights too!! We don't have a car so very seldom do I get to see any. I would love to see a post of some of your favorite houses lit up!!

Christmas lights really make the season feel more festive to me

We put a single string up and then maybe some old net lights on the bushes. That's all. Not overdone. They have to come down eventually, so best not to overdo it here.
