We were invited to a tree lighting/wine and cheese last night. It all started out as a bit of a joke, when I turned on my Christmas outside lights before December 1st. When I mentioned to the neighbours why they didn't have their outside lights on; they said they didn't turn them on until December 1st. So I suggested they should have an official Christmas tree lighting ceremony for their outside Christmas lights.
The phone rang on Monday evening inviting dh and I to the ceremony. As two neighbours were having the ceremony (they live side by side) I figured we had better not go empty handed. So after I got the winter tires put on the car I popped to the store to pick them up a Poinsettia each.
Popped into the dollar store and picked up a gift bag each.....they cost $1.25 by the way not $1, some candy canes and the little Santa ornament.
It's not a lot but it says we are thinking of them.
Today's Christmas song I thought should be about Christmas lights. Although this is really neat to look at I would absolutely hate to live next door to this!
