Blue Light Special

A few years ago neighbors behind us started putting blue lights on a small evergreen tree. The lights went on before Christmas and stayed on for weeks after.



Then there were 2 blue lit trees. This year there are 3.




The trees light up in the late afternoon, and stay lit until the next morning.




Mister and I like the blue lights. We look for them each evening, or if we get up at night, or when we get up in the morning. Someday when we see our neighbors we are going to thank them for this simple pleasure.

Join me as I visit Dayle for Simple Pleasures Thursday!

And have a blessed day!

Carol

I love it when people keep up their lights through winter's chill and dark. It's so comforting to see when passing by. I, too, have a wonderful neighbor who ran lights all through this cold winter's day and night.

This is wonderful. I have never understood why we feel the need to hastily unlight our world right after Christmas. I think those blue lights keep the celebration going.

Carol,
I would love to see those blue trees out of my window each night. They are lovely and somehow reassuring, shining all night long. A wonderful Simple Pleasure.

How nice to see those outside your window. I'm sure your neighbors would love to hear how you've enjoyed them. Pretty, pretty.

How pretty! A perfect simple pleasure! Our neighbors have a giant evergreen that they do in white lights for xmas and I always miss it when they take them down. It's beautiful for the season!
