Christmas Lights in the Neighbourhood

Deep inside all of us is a child that is waiting to be delighted. I am a sucker for lights. I would not put them on my home, but I love to scout the neighbourhood every year to see what has been shared. This blog is a small taste ( and tasteless ) experience of our exploration a few nights ago.

Some choose white.

Some delight.

This house is one of my favourites and I long to walk the little tree-lined path.

Some choose bright.

Another one that touched my heart.

The next four photos are the same house.  Families were stopping by to show their young children the delights. There was even a Santa's Grotto in the garden.

Next door the neighbours have toned it down a bit.

We had a fun evening with lots of laughter. Thank you to all those who took the time and the trouble to share and display their Festive spirit so freely.

Wherever you are and however you decorate your home, have a happy Festive Season.


  1. What a great collection Elseline... I love Christmas lights and all the decorations, they're so much fun!

  2. We appear to be kindred spirits in many ways, Tina.
