We started in our own yard with these fun lollipops my grandfather made years ago. They are wooden, painted lolli-pops wrapped in cellophane.
Our neighbors place this simple, white nativity in their front yard and spotlight it onto the house. I don't know which I like better, the large shadow it creats, or the spotlight on the actual decoration.
Had to snap a pic of the kids, too:)
several of the streets in our neighborhood are lined with trees decorated in different colors. Our street is red bottoms, white tops, one is green and white, another is red top, white bottoms.
My favorite picture of the night. The family posing with a display.
So, do something different this year. Take a different look at Christmas lights. And, don't forget the camera!
