Christmas Lights for Virginia

On Saturday, December 22, 2012, Virginia, BlogHer’s HomeRearedChef, wrote a great post titled, “Might Your Neighbor Have Too Many Christmas Lights?” When I read it, an image of our neighbor down the street immediately popped into my head.

Fighting to Comment down the page in Virginia’s post, as over sixty other BlogHers added their thoughts, I mentioned my neighbor. I alluded to how he has the most lights I’ve ever seen on a private residence. Well, from that moment on, Virginia was like a little kid wanted to see the lights. Pouting and whining until she got her way, I decided I had to satisfy her girlish whims.

What else could I do? I could see the news of an expected new baby in the family and having THREE posts up on the right hand side at once (is that a record?) was not going to be enough Christmas for Virginia. So, on Sunday night, I had to have my husband drive me to the house, I took photos and tonight, I loaded them up on the Internet and…here they are!

A still photo wasn’t enough to set the scene.


The lights from the other side of the street? Still not enough.


Out of the car on the same side of the street. Ah-h-h-! That’s it!

So, Merry Christmas, Virginia! These lights are for you!

See what you think! Is this a great number of lights? Or, do you have more nearby where you live?
