Lights. In all forms. I can't get enough of them! At this time of year, when we are just beginning our long dark winter, every little glow; cheers and warms. Throughout my home, I have many little lamps, and then during this season I love to add garlands, tree lights, candles, and have my whole house just glowing with color and brightness. We added a new spot of color yesterday. My hubby and I went antique shopping (I just love searching for vintage Christmas items) and he comes to me and says, "Look at this wreath! My Grand-mom had this exact kind and it hung in her kitchen window each year." What a great memory, so of course I just had to have it. Very inexpensive and in it's original box! It now hangs in the craft room, so when my hubby comes to the house from his shop, he can see it and remember. So very wonderful!
Then last night, we loaded up our girls for a dinner out and a tour of the town to see all the Christmas Lights. We suck on candy canes, listen to Christmas music and spend about an hour ooooing and ahhhing over the displays in town. I am always amazed at how even the smallest little place with have this little string of Christmas lights and it warms my heart. I love to see people celebrating. And by putting up lights and trees and decorations, (no matter how small) I feel we then truly embrace the season. For after all, the Christmas Star and all it's neighboring stars were the very first string of Christmas lights, weren't they? :) Always, Kit
