Celebrating the Season Of Lights

One thing that has always delighted me about this season is the abundance of lights. In Arkansas, I was pleased to discover that there is an annual tradition of decorating town squares and have made it a point each year to visit the square in Fayetteville. This year was no exception. Come stroll through the magical dispay.

There were pony rides for the children though it was a bit cold to attract an abundance of young ones.

There was even a live reindeer hanging out close to where kids could have their picture taken with Santa. It seemed decidedly unimpressed with the occasion (yes, he’s sleeping).

I think that no matter one’s thoughts about this season, bright lights on a cold winter’s night always seem to bring a little magic into the world.

Wishing you all joy, and peace.
