the third of december

This is our neighbor’s house. He pulls out box after box after box overflowing with lights the weekend after Halloween and by Thanksgiving the rooftops are shouting their blue rays above the neighborhood. People turn down our street for the sole purpose of pulling to the curb and snapping pictures.

Until a few days ago, our door was bedecked with its autumn wreath.

My boys were distraught, because after all, our front windows glow blue.

    Wow, that house is pretty impressive! The lights look well-done too. We have a neighbor like that too, only they start on Christmas lights before Halloween – it’s crazy how many decorations they put up!

    I saw a picture yesterday of an amazingly decorated house decked out with Christmas lights and the neighbors wrote “ditto” in christmas lights, with an arrow, in their yard ;) You should totally do that! Xo, your newest follower
