Christmas Lights

One of the things I really enjoy about this time of the year is seeing the Christmas lights. Who doesn’t? I personally hate the holidays but I do love seeing the lights and decorations.

There are two houses next to each other on the edge of Mount Joy that really do a lot every year. It’s almost as if they try to out do each other. Last year due to me having COVID we really didn’t get to walk down past there like I wanted to. We drove around but you can’t see that well from the car.

Last night we were out for walk and it was pretty nice. We were almost to the library to begin with so I suggested we just take that route home to check them out. It was only going to be a block or two out of our way so we did it.

This picture shows two houses with lots of Christmas lights.

We’ve noticed some other nice Christmas decorations while out on our walks. I suspect we’ll be seeing more as time goes on and it gets closer to the holidays. It’s always a good thing to see people putting time and effort into what they enjoy.

Growing up I remember some houses really went all out with their Christmas lights. I even remember one having a donation box on their fence to help pay their electric bill. That was long before cheap and efficient LED lights were really out there.

We’re thinking about putting our lights up on the porch this year. Last year we wanted to but then I was quarantined due to having tested positive for COVID. Unlike most people out there I actually took it seriously.
