Don't you just love all the lights! I certainly do. Does your town go all out for Christmas? On the south shore of Lake Tahoe where I live there are clusters of lights in the tourist corridors such as Heavenly Ski Village and the casino corridor but on the north side of the lake the small towns of Tahoe City and Truckee go all out. Traditionally Ken and I take a day trip to Truckee to shop walk around in the cute little shops and see the lights, but I guess we'll be skipping it this year since we are committed to staying close to home and enjoying our own lights which really do help to brighten the season.
