When I was younger I remember riding in the backseat of my parents car watching all the beautiful, twinkling lights, and I knew I loved Christmas. Now that I am older it is still the same! My husband and I even chose this season to get married in. Family, friends, food, giving and receiving presents, little ones listening for Santa all night long, and last but most definitely not least, the wondrous lights!
Sadly I have been noticing a trend….. You drive down the street and 1… 2… 3… 4… 5… houses… no lights. Then BAM! A house glowing to the brim with lights galore! Then… (you guessed it) 10 or so more houses… no lights. This all or nothing saddens me.
Even for those not as festive or even for those with different beliefs, we could all use just a little light on these cold, harsh days where the sun sets before most of us even get home from work. I am not asking for much, you do not need to climb roofs (risking life and limb) to make your street beautiful. NO. Just one string, or wreath, or even a small candle in the window can make someone’s drive home bright.
This is my dream! Turning down the street towards home and seeing a line of homes, each lit with one small piece of joy! What a sight that would be!

Merry Christmas!!! May all your Christmas’s be bright!!
