Candy Cane Lane

This evening, after having dinner with friends, I suggested a visit to Candy Cane Lane.  It's a place I've visited throughout my life and I pretty much equate it with the Christmas season.

(Note to my readers, if you don't like Christmas, Christmas lights, or the Christmas spirit. you should probably just stop reading.)

There was a huge line up to enter Candy Cane Lane.  After waiting in the car for a block (which probably took 15 minutes), we decided to park and walk.  The weather was unseasonably warm (46 degrees!) and we had an unobstructed view!

Here's what we enjoyed:

 Headed into Candy Cane Lane
 This house was so adorable. But we wondered, can you buy strands of alternating red and white lights or did they sort them by hand?
 Each yard had the word peace in different languages, including Serbian, Tagalong, Chinese, and more.
 It's hard to see but this yard is a polar wonderland, complete with polar bears, penguins, and ice.
 Really pretty all-white decorations.
 A view back down the street.
 A blurry but beautiful tree.
This awesoeme structure actually was suspended from the power polls and circles the hedge in the middle.  Pretty intense.

Are there any neighborhoods where you live known for their decorations?

  1. I love Candy Cane Lane! I'm a Christmas fanatic and love a good lights display. But I love Candy Cane Lane because of the combo of the beautiful old houses plus the pretty lights. So fun!

  2. Awww... pretty! When I was little, we used to drive to the city next to us and go through all the nicer residences to look at the lights- they'd go all out!

  6. There have to be some, but so far I've found one house with the lights coordinated to music.
