How many of you go and drive around looking at Christmas lights? My parents are here visiting and they’re going to spend the winter with me, which I am absolutely thrilled about. We went around tonight and looked at all the lights in my neighborhood. My neighborhood association, The Block House Creek Neighborhood Association, awards Grand Prize, First Place and Runners Up winners to folks who have amazing light shows for the holidays.
Here is this year’s Grand Prize winner:
They had their lights synchronized to music, which always blows me away. You pull up in front of the house and tune your radio to a certain station and their lights are synced with the music on that station. It’s truly amazing and I could sit and watch it all night long! We also found another home who had the synchronized lights, which was equally amazing and they were a Runner Up winner.
I’m so excited that I was able to share this with my folks. My dad has said numerous times over the last week how grateful he is that I put up a Christmas tree for them because he thinks it will be his last. Tonight he commented that he probably wouldn’t see lights like this again. It breaks my heart to hear him say that but I’m so happy to have been able to share this with them.
Do you guys enjoy the Christmas lights? Do you decorate outside, inside or both? Do you drive around to look at Christmas lights?
