Christmas Lights

I remember riding around looking at Christmas lights when I was a child.  It was one of my favorite things to do at Christmas time.  I still love doing that today.  The other night I went out with my camera and took a few pictures of the neighborhood.

I made this one into a Christmas card for you.  The picture really doesn't do it justice.


I love that you can see the Christmas Tree in the window here.


I would hate to have to hang the lights in these peaks .


I love the simplicity of this one



This is a beautiful B&B


Which one is your favorite?

Linking to Madge's Christmas Cheer.

Wishing you all a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!
See you in a few days.

Barb

Very nice Christmas card pic! The owners of that house should do the same!
I LOVE the stonework on the 2nd house, very beautiful & creative.
I have to 2nd your motion about the lights on the 3rd, very steep!
The branches frame the next one nicely, don't you think.
I've always wanted a house w/ a wrap-around porch like on the last house.
Beautiful neighborhood & pics... love all the snow =)

What a pretty town you live in! The houses are all beautiful, but I like the simple blue-grey one, with a light in each window, best of all.

These photos are just what Christmas is all about to me. Old fashion, enjoying the reason for the season vs all the hub bub and commercialism.
