My mom changes up our Christmas lights every year. This year she went with red (the ones in these photos are our neighbors). Our house is a dark grey color and my older sister, Addison, hates the red lights on our home. She thinks our house looks demonic. Personally, I prefer only white lights, but I also know there have been years when we haven't even put up lights. So mostly I'm thankful that my mom put lights up this year, and that she put them up early on to make the most out of the Christmas season. After all, one of my favorite activities this time of year is bundling up and walking around to look at all of the twinkling bulbs.
