Holiday Lights

During the holiday season, decorations adorn the yards and homes of our neighborhood. Many people put the nets of lights on bushes and strands of lights on the trees. Others have the lighted deer (which we have) or Santas or other characters, while some have a Nativity or blow-up characters. The icicle lights, which were very popular a few years ago, are no longer "in." That's too bad because I really liked those.

We noticed while driving around this year that there aren't as many decorated houses. Businesses have cut back on decorations, too. The power company, which usually has a huge tree made of electric lights on top of its downtown headquarters, doesn't have it this year.

Are there as many decorations where you live?

I think we have just as many decorations, but probably because we need more visuals to get us in the Christmas mood. Otherwise, it is just another day in the sun that is not quite as hot as August. Sort of.

I say again, warm wishes to you and yours for a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I noticed the same thing around here... A lot fewer lights out this year... Maybe next year huh? :-)

Have yourself a great Christmas!

The decorations do seem to be toned down this year. Merry Christmas.
