Each year I look forward to the Christmas lights. I like to drive around observing how people have decorated their homes and their yards. I’ve really enjoyed the experience each year. I believe that I’ve probably become a little bit jaded by seeing some of the homes that are set to music on the Internet. You can see dancing lights that go completely around the houses and throughout the yards. They’re beautiful, yet I feel that we are becoming so commercial that it’s losing its impact and beauty.
I was driving home yesterday evening when around the corner comes a bicyclist completely decorated with Christmas lights. Wow. It was awesome! The wheels had lights. The frame had lights. His body had lights. His helmet had lights. I stopped the car, rolled down the window, yelled out “Merry Christmas” and gave him a thumbs up. It is restored the beauty of Christmas lights in my mind.
Whoever you are, thank you!
PS I found a news video of him! Excuse the ads from King 5 and just Enjoy:
