The Postscript: Stringing lights
Last updated 12/22/2021 at 9:19am
I walk around my neighborhood later in the evening these days, mostly so I can see the lights.
There are some impressive houses just a mile or so away, and I walk down the sidewalks and see what has appeared on the lawns and in the windows now, right before Christmas.
Some of the houses clearly had outside assistance. There are lights hung in places that only a cherry picker could reach. One house had four such enormous trees in a row, all in uniform white lights, until the top half of one of them went out (which completely spoiled the look) and all four trees have been dark ever since....
