Back in 18th century Germany it became popular to decorate Christmas trees. By the early 20th century it was in vogue to illuminate them with electric lights. By the time the sixties rolled around lights were routinely being put up on houses to decorate for the holidays. For whatever reason they came into fashion. I for one hope they stay around. They bring light to the beginning of the bleak Winter season. It makes me smile to see the creativity of decorators. They allow me some special time to spend with my daughter, putting them up and driving around to look at the spectacles. They bring little beams of happiness into December nights. Long live the tradition.
