I love to look at Christmas lights. We drove around the lake community the other night to see what people had up. I honestly was too ill to go, so I do not have a lot of great pictures. This image is of a family of lighted deer. This type of yard decor has become very popular. Many people and communities opt for plain white lights and that is festive as well as the colored lights. I remember when decorating your house with lights was not very common. My mom, judgemental soul that she was always commented about one particular house that had alternating red and blue lights outlining it, "That house looks like a tavern." It is amazing that I remember that almost sixty years later. I do not know if other countries do lights the way we do. I particularly like large drive through displays.

@Corbin5 I remember once going to downtown Oklahoma City and walking around looking at window displays. I still was most impressed by the shiny blue store front of Russel Stover Candies that was a permanent part of the building.

When the kids were small, I used to drive them around to see houses that had nice decorations. I have never decorated outside myself, it wasn't something my parents did, either. I would love to, but it's all the expense and hassle. Still, I can enjoy what others have done to celebrate the season.
