Lights, Lights and more Lights

I hope everyone had a great holiday and a happy New Year. This is a season when friends and family get together for meals and to spend some time together. It is a festive season that makes most people happy but some very sad. If we let go of the commercialism and the fact that many large chains are forcing their workers to work on holidays, we can enjoy the holiday spirit behind it all. We love lights at this time of year. Many people light of their homes but a few go all out and create a magical spectacle. Just watch the eyes of small children looking at a house full of lights. They can still see the magic! Can you?

Lights are a big custom in Europe as well. These ancient towns go modern with electric lights for a short time. The colors are magnificent. People gather in groups to sing carols. Why are we so drawn to these lights like moths? I think there is magic in the lights. Just allow it to happen.
