The Columbus Commons is all decked out for the holidays, and is a colorful and festive place to walk through on the way to work. It’s great to see people paying attention to our main downtown park and bringing a touch of beauty to the skyscraper zone.
The snow came to Columbus big time today. By tonight, the roads were snow-covered, and driving was slow going — even on the freeways. But when I finally got home tonight, the snow-covered scene and our Christmas lights were pretty and festive and made me remember that Christmas is just over the horizon.
I like the ethereal feel of twirly lights in bare trees as a general rule, but I particularly like how these creative neighbors set things up so that the twirly lights in the trees are linked with the lights along the roofline.
Many of our neighbors in the North of Woods section of New Albany have put up their holiday lights, and the neighborhood looks great. Kish loves Christmas lights, and I agree with her — seeing the pretty displays in the morning and returning from work in the evening makes the world seem a bit more bright and cheerful. I’ll be posting pictures of some of our neighbors’ colorful creations between now and Christmas.
Tomorrow is December 1, and our holiday lights are up. Ho, ho, ho!
