My grandson’s been asking about all the different celebrations that happen this time of year. Without going too ‘pagan’ on him we talked about how people have been coming together in the dark of winter for thousands of years to sing and celebrate and share love for life and each other and be warm! We talked about how the one thing that all the many celebrations happening this time of year have in common is light, lighting of candles, hanging lights, seeing light. One of his (and my!) favorite things to do this time of year is taking in all the lights on houses and around town. Enjoy and be warm!
Here are a sampling of neighborhood light displays. Disclosure – not all are verified!
