Christmas – the most enlightened feast during the year, don’t you think. The world should be filled with lamps in various forms as well as outdoor lighting, lightstrings, candles, lanterns, well – what else, yes I forgot the fireplace too. It creates a certain feeling, using lighting here & there … depending on which feast you are celebrating, what colors you’re using plus where & how much lighting to use. I live in a place where we have dark nights despite a lovely light from early morning to late evening…so we need some help to light up our lives. In this way, this is a great season.
I arrived home late from work one evening & thought lightning had cracking down on our street. But not at all, it was one of our neighbors who had been decorating with all the light that can be bought in the world, in his garden. They live a few houses away from us & I became completely dazzled. I drove by slowly as well as gently & when I passed, I returned into total darkness again. An amazing experience, I must say … but definetivt not an aesthetic one … but more as an unexpected thing that you do not believe can happen, if you don’t experienced it. It might be cruel to say that it wasn’t beautiful, after probably fairly hard work, but nonetheless an experience, which of course is not bad in itself 🙂
Happy holiday / Marie
