The rain cleared up and left yesterday bright and crisp. Which means...pile in the car with overly sugared hot caffinated beverages to explore the twinkly world of Christmas lights in my beloved burg of Lewisville, Texas. (Okay and a bit of Flowermound as we were meandering in a westerly direction). We remembered to bring the dog, (someone has to fog the back windows), but forgot the camera. Oh well, priorities. It was a fantastic evening of color and sparkle as many people in our little suburb are afflicted with a compulsion to decorate their yards for all the holidays. Christmas and Halloween are the two most popular, but you will also see the occaisional, St Patty's, Valentines and Ground Hogs day yard decorations. The best were in neighborhoods where entire cul-de-sacs vied to outdo each other in how many lights and Christmas icons can be fit on the house and front yard. And then, THE BIG SCORE, we found a house that had a computerized dancing light display set to music broadcast to your car radio! We sat through TransSiberian Orchestra and Snoopy's theme just mesmerized. Thank-You decorators and Merry Christmas!
