I heard a plug tonight on Pro-8 news for an online promotion. They are urging people to send in pictures of their Christmas holiday decorations. I guess this would include Christmas trees, lights, inflatable decorations and even manger scenes. They made a comment to the effect that if you like riding around looking at Christmas decorations, now Pro-8 news can have all that for you on their website. In orther words, no need in you riding around anymore, we got it all for you on your computer.
For those who might not be able to get out due to health, transportation and/or other issues, this does offer a nice alternative. For those who are fortunate enough to have the time, health and ability to get out, it might bea a good way to spend an evening, driving around with the family and taking in the sights and sounds of the season.
For some reason, I've always found it interesting to drive around the various barrios and see they display of Christmas spirit even in the most modest of homes. You almost always drive across a tiny, older house that might even be in need of substantial repair but yet manages to come across big in regards to exhibiting the hope and joy that is the Christmas season.
