Christmas comes but once a year....

But takes months to prepare for.

Of course, I love it. I was shocked and delighted to find our main house lights - a string of white icicle lights - still work after a year of being up in all weathers. Putting them up to gutter height on our lofty house with a set of rickety ladders is so difficult and dangerous we leave them up there. They're white, so they're not too conspicious.

Those are the Carlisle City Christmas lights - I wish I could take a picture to do them justice. They are absolutely beautiful, themed around Christmas carols.

Are the lights near you good? Are you subtle with lighting your home, or wildly extravagant?

Dh has fantasies of being "the" house to see at Christmas. We haven't managed it yet, but I foresee a future of extravagance for this home.

The lights in Reading are nice this year. Blue and silver and white, with lots of stars in the trees. I took the time to stop and really look this year, thanks to your description of Carlisle.
