Today was the Winter Soltice; the longest night of the year and the official beginning of winter. It only seemed appropriate to use this much darkness to check out some of the Christmas lights in Warrendale.
The displays ranged from very simple - a strand of lights around a living room window, for example - to downright amazing.
The majority of houses didn't have anything up at all. I'm not sure if that means that folks simply aren't in the holiday mood - or if they were just intimidated by the potential utility bill. Regardless, I loved those moments when there was a whole row of decorated houses.
