a blaze of lights
i think my favorite part of christmastime is the lights. lights make ordinary things seem special. two favorite sights are driving along the BQE at night and passing the downtown manhattan skyline...awesome....and landing at night at LAX, miles and miles of twinkling lights of los angeles spread out as far as the eye can see...amazing. christmas lights make *everywhere* seem special - rich and poor neighborhoods, plain and fancy houses.
so, just a last few christmas light hurrahs this week, before the lights are turned off for another year and the world goes dark.
