We like Christmas lights even though they're a bit indulgent. We like decorating our house. We also like driving around and looking at all the Christmas lights. Different places have different traditions. In London, people would display their tree through a window or have lights outlining the windows. In Florida, houses in one area were decorated by professionals who wrapped the palm trees with lights. Another neighborhood was dominated by lights suspended from a central pole to look like a tree. We drove around the Highland Park area of Dallas the other night and looked at lights.
I had this idea that it might be interesting to see what our little town looks like at Christmas time. So, here's the tour. I apologize up front for the picture quality - since I'm not a great photographer nor do I use a fancy camera.
