These photos were actually taken last year, on a drive through one of the neighborhoods that looked really festive as we drove around. I felt I was too late in the season to share them, so decided to wait until now.
Some people decorated their homes very simply, but beautifully.
Others must have really had a love of lights. The house below had more moving decorations projected onto their homes, a light show. It was very effective.
The house below had the Christmas Story leg lamp in the lighted window at the top (on the left). If you have watched that movie you will know what I am talking about. Here is the scene. It was kind of funny but uncomfortable, and I really felt for his wife. I wondered the story behind this one to tell you the truth, and I wish I could have been a fly on the wall when this one went up in that window. The other decorations in the yard were very pretty.
We were in a line of cars driving by this house and the next one just up the road.
The people at this house have been decorating for several years and it is always fun to drive by. We always look forward to this time of the year, and if we have visitors we take them to see it also.
My photos don't do it justice, in fact all these homes have to be seen with one's own eyes to see the full beauty of those lights.
We sent these photos to family in Ireland, and someone said something to the effect that she hoped the planes didn't get confused and try landing on the street. She has a really wonderful sense of humor and we laughed. Also our airport is only half an hour away.
More subdued lighting at these houses, beautiful in their simplicity.
I thought more houses were decorated than the year previous to this one, and I am looking forward to going for another drive very soon to see what’s in store for the neighborhoods this time. I hope you have enjoyed these.
