The Christmas season is almost over. I say almost because most people don't start taking decorations down until next week. I'm a little sad at this realization. I was driving down the street (by myself...how'd that happen) and was struck by how beautiful and magical the lights are. There's something so amazing by houses decorated in lights. It doesn't matter how much or how little lights there are, they create this ambiance that I wish we could have year round. Imagine how pretty it would be to drive down the street at any time of year and see lights on houses scattered around; to turn a corner and be struck by the brilliance and beauty of a house lighted in the dark. I'm going to miss this part of December.
