There are colored lights on trees, on houses, on porches, white lights in the shapes of reindeer and abstract cones representing trees. In the past week she had been discovering how the new neighborhood celebrates the holidays. There’s not much in the way of twinkle lights, or anything with motion. It is all very traditional, with lots of wreaths with red bows, and electric candlelights in windows, and dainty white lights, or big colored lights. Very, very tall trees have been decked out with colored lights streaming down from the top. Tonight, small brightly colored lights twinkle outside their house.
