Have You Been Light Lookin' Yet?

Have you been driving or walking around looking at the lights yet?

 

We go out about 9 p.m. at least 3 times a week to drive around town looking at all the Christmas lights!  I just love it!  So many people have been kind enough to put up these great displays for us to enjoy!

 

The smaller ones, simple with few lights, I love too because it reminds me of my childhood and the lights we'd put upon the porch railings.

DH and I usually take a drive around on Christmas day after sun down. Some areas are amazing.

I don't see nearly as much of it as I used to.  Electric rates are pretty high around here!

I haven't yet but we will soon.  One of the neighboring towns is supposed to put on a very glittery light display.

Our family has not been yeet but will be going.  In our city there is one really awesome Christmas display that we go to every year.  The family collects donations for the animal shelter.

There's a street in South Philly that's been dubbed "The miracle on 13th Street". The entire neighborhood works together to decorate and light up several city blocks. It's a fabulous display of city Christmas spirit.

No, the last time I saw Christmas lights at night was in 2003 when I was still working 11-7; just not a fan.

No, we stopped when so many displays were just blow ups.
