Holiday Lights

There’s so much to love about this time of year, the food, the gift giving, the decorations, the cookies, the parties, the vacation time, the holiday spirit…

But I think the thing I love the most is the lights. All the little, twinkling lights shining everywhere on these long dark nights, even inside.

Especially inside.

Because when you have a tree all lit up in the dark…Christmas Tree

… the rest of the house fades away and you can pretend the mess– What mess?

I don’t see a mess!

‘Tis the season of twinkle lights and dark corners, make the most of it!!!

Long ago I used to write posts with more than a hundred words. (I know!? Who knew?!) But I felt the same way about Christmas time. Here is a six year old post about ignoring The Rest of Life to enjoy the season.

  1. That’s the best way to deal with housework this time of year 🙂

    I love Christmas lights too! They’re so endlessly pretty eeeeep. I used to hang some on my bookshelf but I had them sitting on my floor waiting to go up and my dog decided it’d be fun to chew them. So. No lights this year.😂

      Silly pooch! I have them in my office room too… where there happens to be books on a shelf and I’m trying to decide if I can justify leaving them up forever. But then I suppose they wouldn’t be so fun and cheerful next winter. (Or summer… if you are you I guess… but it’s winter and dark here… and this makes my head hurt thinking about it!)

  3. Fairy lights are one of my favourite things about this season – they really brighten up the dark nights. I love to look at the lights other people have put up outside – and yes, indoor lights are a great distraction from Christmas chaos all over the house!

    There’s nothing like the lights on a Christmas tree. 😀

      Agreed! And will anyone be surprised to hear I leave mine up until the needles all start showering down? Probably not. It’s a good think I prefer real trees if I had a fake one I might leave it up forever! 😀
