Christmas Windows!!

Have you ever been to New York City at Christmastime?
Waited on those long lines with great anticipation to see the
"Windows at Macy's"?
 
I have...and I never "got it"!!
Don't get me wrong, they were pretty, but not Christmassy.
So edgy, so colorful...I had no idea what I was looking at.
 
On Saturday, we went to Ocean Grove for the
Live Nativity Show
 
and the lighting of their Christmas Tree,
everything was beautiful.
Their tree is simple, they decorate one that is growing in their
meeting square, the same tree every year.
I like that no trees are harmed in the
lighting of this tree!
Afterward, we walked around town,
and what I enjoyed the most, were all the store front windows,
decorated for Christmas.
 
Let me show you what I am talking about...
 











The Christmas Tree in Ocean Groves Town Square

After Ocean Grove, we drove by this house in Spring Lake.
the lights were synchronized to Christmas music.
It is an exceptional display that this family creates every year!!
 
Many thanks to the Sisti Family, we really enjoyed your home!!

  4. Each window tells a story! I love these. I liked to walk along the sidewalks in Lynchburg when I was a child and look at the windows. I wonder if the people who create these displays realize how much enjoyment they bring to others?

  10. Your photos are fantastic. Thank you for sharing them with us, those Christmas likes must be incredible to see with your own eyes. The last photo is a 'wow'. We had a house similar to this one but the last couple of years no sign of lights.

  21. I like and the last decor my daughter has a neighbor one street over who started with a tree in front yard and has ended up a whole house lite outside. So now every christmas he has cars looking all hours of the night.

    My hubby and I loved to watch every year the houses who have the first price winning best lights on T.V.

  24. I've never done NY at Christmas - not a 'stand in line' girl....but small town Christmas windows for the win!! I'm sure I'd feel the same way you do about the NY windows - I'm all about 'kitsch' and nostalgia at Christmas time!
