Where I grew up, bad kids would steal Christmas bulbs from outdoor displays and throw them at cats or each other. It was such a simpler time.
Here in the Gated Community, the Christmas lights are all aglow... even the guard shack lights the daytime with holiday cheer. The HOA manager pimps the commercial house decoration company so you don't have to fall off your own ladder.
And gosh darn it, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
Walking the dog this AM I snapped a shot of what mom nature does best with a little freeze, a little water - making electric lights, tinsel and glitter look a little cheesy.
