Christmas Festival of Lights

As a city dweller, I really haven’t been seeing much in the way of Christmas lights over the last few years. Tonight, on a bus through the suburbs, I was really surprised by the complexity of many of the displays decorating what I think are moderate-cost homes. When a good percentage of houses have lights on a particular street, the scene really looks festive, but I mean more in a “fiesta!” kind of way rather than a “holiday spirit” kind of way. It really looks like people should be dancing in the street and perhaps throwing beads.
