On this Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year, I appreciate Christmas lights.
As I drive around different neighborhoods, there are those who obviously share my sentiments. Their houses are decorated with beautiful twinkling displays that make the cold night shimmer and sparkle.
Then there are those who REALLY appreciate Christmas lights. Fortunately, social media allows us to share these illuminated phantasms very easily including these amazing five over-the-top efforts:
The Star Wars Theme:
The California Neighborhood Cooperative Christmas:
Bath, England 3-D Light Show:
The Pop Remix
…and if you can stand listening to this song one more time,
The “Frozen” Tribute:
All of these are the reason to love Christmas lights….and be thankful you do not live next door! The 7th gift of Christmas makes bright the darkest of all nights.
