I thought it might be fun for us to post either photos, or links to extraordinary Christmas lights on homes, museums, zoos, etc. This way we can see what goes on in one another's hometowns.

Here's a link to Baltimore's greatest effort by one block of neighbors in the city. I'm going to see it for the umpteenth time Wednesday night with my girlfriends, after getting a bite to eat at Cafe Hon.

Note the Web address!

And here's where we're eating:

Make sure you check out the pitcher gall'ry, hon!

OOOOOO I LOVE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!!!!!!!! smile smile smile

And last year while visiting my daughter and family in the US..they took me and my 2 grandchildren from Sweden, that I had with me, to see this house that was known for it´s abundance of Christmas Lights. The cars were lined up to see this place....And it was like a fairy land with sooo many things to look at. I just LOVED it!!! It was like lit up play area/park smile smile And grandma had some fun there grin

There are lights here in Sweden,too..to light up the darkness which is loooong each day. And they ARE getting more numerous and more colorful..so I have tough time keeping on the road here,too..looking at all the decorations. But it´s still nothing compared to the US. Gosh, Dotsie..wish I could be there with you. Next time, girl..I won´t let you down!!! But it really was CRAZY last year smile

PS. Just checked out your links. OOOOO YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE FUN!!!!!!

The new lights they are selling now, LED lights, are so much brighter and beautiful... I am going to see one of the largest displays in our city tomorrow night at Sunset Park.

Well I finally made it to Sunset Park last night to see the cities largest Christmas lights display, and it was gigantic and fantastic. I felt like a kid again from the excitement. I even stopped for hot cocoa and cookies along the drive through the park.

Sorry about that humlan. I still couldn't find in on Facebook.

chatty,glad you enjoyed it. I understand what you mean about feeling like a kid again. We will ride around one night between Christmas and New Year's and look at lights in different neighborhoods. It's one of my favorite things to do this season. It's so neat because every single home is different.
