Tripping the LIGHT Fantastic

Oh the first day of Christmas, my true love took me to see
A huge, lighted Opryland tree.

Every year, the Opryland Hotel festoons the trees, shrubs - and poles - around the main entrance to the property with a light display like no other. In July, the horticulturists start hanging the more-than-two-million lights in preparation for Country Christmas. The lights above turn an ordinary flag pole into a twinkling holiday tree.

Tomorrow I'll show you another view and tell you a little more of what goes on at Opryland.

Wow. That is beautiful, and elegant and probably a little lavish. I like your photo of it too.

Beautiful tree!

Thanks for visiting my NorthBayPhoto blog. A cold winter is always quite fun. Tonight it's only supposed to go to -24C but with the windchill it's supposed to get to -40C. Time to bundle up.

Amazing Christmas lights. Why am I not surprised the Opryland go all the way out with the decorations.
