Simple Pleasures of Christmas

Even dry, tar roads can't dampen the holiday spirit circulating among the outdoor spectators inhaling the unseasonably warm, night air. Counting down the days to Christmas on one hand, temperatures in many parts poorly reflex the long awaited special occasion children impatiently yearn for each year.

Whether an individual residence is New Hampshire or Florida, or perhaps somewhere in-between, most people embrace the simple pleasures of Christmas. A blanket of snow glistens with sparkling beauty, but its absence can be overcome in the form of shimmering lights that may blink and take on their own spectacular form. When night falls, bold outlines running along a cluster of homes and trees can become a breathe taking sight. The smiles and wide-eyed expressions quickly turn a simple ride through the neighborhood or town park into an adventure for its viewers.

For the ones who give their time and money to decorate buildings and set up those wonderful ground displays, the results are often priceless. Lifting the spirits of so many, a ordinary Christmas season may become  brighter when creating new memories from holidays lights.
