With only 2 weeks to go until Christmas, most people have now pulled out the lights, wrestled with the trees and bushes, and completed a job we’re happy we do just once a year. Let’s face it, very few people look forward to stringing the lights on any tree—inside or out. But we do it year after year with many of us increasing the scope of our decorations each time. Why?
Maybe because light symbolizes good, positive energy, enlightenment and illumination—just what we need right now. Or it could just be that the beautiful, colorful lights make us feel happy, delight the child in us all, and get us into the spirit of the holidays.
If you haven’t taken the time to walk around your neighborhood or taken a drive to see the seasonal displays, this is a good weekend to do so.
In addition to enjoying the creative holiday displays found in the various neighborhoods in your city, you can take in the holiday displays on Main Street.
Most botanical gardens and zoos have very creative light displays which delight the whole family.
State houses, monuments, and parks are decked out for the season.
Wherever you may be, there is no escaping the passion for bright and multi-colored lights this time of year. Of course, no town has a passion for Holiday decorating like New York City.
