When I was little we had a game we played when we drove around at night during the Christmas season. I have no idea how it started but we would sit with our eyes glued to the windows and when we spotted Christmas lights we would try to be the first to yell “lights!” I still do this now, but my kids don’t do get it :-)
I love driving around and looking at everyone’s decorations. I love the huge displays the parks and towns put up. I love the boat parade on the Intracoastal. I love finding those neighborhoods where every house is decorated!
When our kids were little we would put them in cozy jammies and drive around. If I could do it all over again I’d probably make them hot cocoa and cookies to take along :-)
I saw a few of our neighbors putting their lights up this weekend. I’m looking forward to finding some new light displays this year. I’m thankful for those who decorate their homes for Christmas! Maybe I’ll make some cocoa and cookies for the kids this year, even though they are now big kids! :-)
