The lights of Christmas

About 20 minutes south of Downey is an area of Long Beach called Naples. Visiting Naples has long been one of our Christmas traditions. The houses are set up along canals with walkways between the house and the canal. It's a perfect place to stroll and admire the beautiful houses decorated to charm, amuse, and entertain.

I loved the homey feel of this entrance. It glowed with lights and warm colors. It's so inviting. I think that is one of the appealing things about Naples. Nearly all of the houses are decorated and the entire area has a tangible glow.

But I have to admit that my favorite scene from tonight was the one below with the family chillin' on the couch.

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
