I wish you and your loved ones a very merry Christmas, whether it’s a white Christmas, or a wet one, or a sunny one. A few nights ago I went to our town’s best Christmas light displays with my kids and took picture after picture as we enjoyed the show. With these images, I’m sending some Christmas cheer your way!

WordPress weekly photo challenge: Illumination

This week’s WordPress photo challenge is illumination. The first photo that came to mind for this theme is one I took last weekend during our outing at Coronado Beach, in San Diego, California. I found this beautiful chandelier hanging from the ceiling of the large and historical lobby of the Hotel Del Coronado. Gorgeous!

When I think of illuminations, I can’t help but remembering the beautiful Christmas lights we saw this past holiday. I posted many Christmas light photos a few weeks ago, but here are a couple of my favorite.

Sunday Post: Christmas

Today I’m participating in Jakesprinter’s Sunday Post photo challenge. This week’s theme is Christmas. One of my favorite things about Christmas is all the Christmas lights I get to enjoy for about a month every year. I take my kids around town to take a look at them, by foot and by car.

Last night, we walked around our neighborhood and I took the photos below. Next week, we’ll go to a very famous part of our town where almost every single house on the block is covered with Christmas lights. I can’t wait!

I’m using the WordPress gallery format today because I have quite a lot of photos to share with you. Remember you can click on each photo to enjoy a larger view of the Christmas lights in a slideshow format.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
