Christmas Lights

This time of year, a lot of people put up Christmas lights on their houses. So, along with lots of other bloggers, I'm putting up some photos of Christmas lights in my part of town, taken yesterday evening. The first house belongs to my friend Bill, the other ones I don't know.
All these photos were taken hand-held, and I didn't edit them except to reduce the sizes to fit on to the blog. I'm sure you can find lots more holiday photos at the My World Tuesday site.

  3. Very festive! Reminds me of the first year we lived in OR; the girls were about 2 yrs old. It gets dark by 4:00 so I drove around with them "before dinner" looking at the pretty lights. It wasn't long before I realized I was lost! This was long before cell phones; I had to keep driving, peering through the darkness for a familiar landmark, and cheerfully blinking back tears. Dinner was pretty late that night, but my husband was just glad to see us again. Me? I'm still traumatized!

  8. We went out for a drive Christmas evening to look at all the pretty lights. I wonder if the folks who take the trouble to create these wonderlands realize how much their efforts are appreciated to so many people. Your neighborhood really sparkles!

  18. Pretty in your neighborhood, Al. Get those boots and hit the slopes. We have great early snow in Breck, but will need more after the Holiday rush.

  19. These look lovely in the dark - but a bit fish-out-of-water in the daytime! Do the people with these big displays collect money for charity?

  22. These are great! How long do people keep their lights up? It's nice to know that the festive lights don't go away right after christmas :-)

  23. I'm so glad that the lights of Christmas are still up. We usually leave our outside Christmas tree lights on until at LEAST New Years. Longer, if possible!

    These are really beautiful - I was surprised when you said you hand held your camera. My shots would have been blurry and scraggly!
