I generally hate nightfall at 5 o’clock. But the plenitude of Christmas (and Hanukkah) lights on my street have, at least temporarily, changed that sentiment. The neighborhood almost feels magical. Pretty simple decorations and arrangements. Nothing as amazing as the light sequence in the above video, which you might recognize from this time last year.
(As an aside, the Starbucks I am sitting in right now is playing the Peanuts Christmas soundtrack. Awesome.)
