Holiday Lights

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.
