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!!
Now these pictures just shout out "Christmas!" I love walking through quaint towns a night during the Christmas season and looking in the windows - everything is so sweet and pretty.
Hugs to you!
Wow oh wow oh wow-o! Now THAT's what I'm talking' about! Yes, ma'am!
sweet, traditional displays. :) lovely.
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?
WOW! No need to ask what time of the year is!!! That last shot is fantastic and must have been great to watch as the lights changed with the music.
I want to adopt those elves. (or were the gnomes?)
LOVE all the lights! I need to get out to a big town to get some!
These are so festive! I can't imagine seeing the light show set to music. Wow. I admire people going to all the effort to create something so impressive.
I love this town during Christmas.
Fabulous and magical images.
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.
I love the flying snowman!!!
And when I scrolled down, I fell in love with the corrousel hummingbird@!!!! I want it!!
Oh, I have had flu, but am on the way to recovery...
Great windows ... The way they're supposed to look this time of year. And that family sure goes above and beyond! Quite a gift to the community.
All so very pretty. I especially like the store windows. :)
Debbie, I agree with your comment on the window displays.. These are so cute, I love the elves.. And the tree is pretty. The last shot of the decorated house and lawn is amazing.. Great post, have a happy new week!
Great pics of these Christmas displays! Cheery and bright!
Wow! They don't mess around! Gorgeous decorations!
Oh these pictures are magnificent. I would have totally enjoyed taking a walk around this town.
The window displays are just so lovely; as always fantastic photos.
Blessings and hugs for the Christmas feelings today.
I love it! I miss having "downtown" storefront window displays! I hope you have plans for a fabulous week!
I like these Christmas decorations. Just beautiful!!
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.
Those are elaborate and beautiful displays.
Wonderful Christmas displays! I would love to see them.
Thank you debbie :)
Such beautiful festive shots !
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!
What a fun place. I love that house!
Wow! That is an impressive display of lights!
Beautiful window displays, and I love the house!
Breathtaking, work hard in their decor !!
Okay, this is my destination post to review just before I go into another all night wrapping spree! Great motivation here, so lovely and fun, every photo!
I'm in awe at all the work some people put into their decorations. It really spreads good cheer doesn't it. So are you Debbie in sharing it like you do :D)
