There really is something so magical about Christmas lights, it makes you smile. What am I talking about? Guess it would be good to explain…Here goes.
Last night Autumn and I decided to take a little cruise around our home town, where she lives. As kids we always took rides around town to look at Christams lights, such magic and so awesome.There used to be one street where the whole entire street was decked out, every house coordinated. Lights were strung all over, I have to say that street takes the prize for pure magic. They even changed the street name during the Christmas holidays to Candy Cane Lane, for real they did!
I am only 3 miles away from Autumn and our home town, but we do live in separate towns. I know, go figure? My little town has some nice lights and all…But it really is a very small town. One main road through town and no traffic lights, what does that tell you?
Does anyone remember as kids, even as grownups driving around looking at the Christmas lights? All the houses glowing brightly. Decorations and almost every house all decked out…It is just plain magic! We really did have a wonderful time, it was relaxing and uplifting. It seems more houses were light up this year…Some very unusual and quite lovely. So, we twinnies cruised around just having a good old time of it.
We laughed about the most decked house with millions of lights and also those huge blow up lawn globes. It was just a tad overdone, but everyone does it their way right? What memories does anyone care to share…We twinnies would love to know!
The one bright moment was Autumn and I didn’t have the GPS system on and we didn’t get lost! That’s where everyone needs to laugh…It would be quite pitiful getting lost in our own hometown wouldn’t it? 😉 🙂
This was a real nice writing. I too have enjoyed Christmas lights ever since I was a little girl. We too have had “Candy Cane Lanes” in little cities where I have lived, too. I don’t have a car now, but I often just hop on my bike and enjoy the lights around town. The cool crisp air is invigorating and often I can hear some Christmas music at certain homes, too, along with the lights. Nice you do fun things in your life. Take care. Sincerely, Connie Webb
Thanks Connie and I am happy to hear you also had “Candy Cane Lanes”. 🙂 That would be fun to ride on your bike to see the Christmas lights, I would love to do that! Unfortunately here in PA it is too cold to try it without freezing. I am trying to do some more fun things this holidy season, to balance out all the busy and hectic days! 🙂 You take care, too Connie.
That was so much fun seeing the Christmas lights, Gabs! We do have a nice little Hometown in a lot of ways 🙂 TF ❤ =Twins Forever
Our little hometown is nice for sure. We did have fun twinnie! 🙂 TF <3=Twins Forever
Yay, you didn’t get lost! 🙂 I love this story; we have always done this with our kids, even now when they’re older. They still enjoy it and it is a magical experience! Thanks for sharing, Gabby! 🙂
That makes me happy you still carry on the tradition of looking at Christmas lights with your kids. I am glad you enjoyed this one Lauren, thank you. 🙂 It is so uplifting as well as fun! Also glad we twinnies didn’t get lost! Wouldn’t that have been a story? 🙂
Yes, another story for us all to enjoy! 🙂
A real story, for sure Lauren. As well as a bit embarassing, getting lost in our own hometown would be rather pitiful! 🙂
They are, aren’t they? 🙂
