We went to dinner at the home of some friends and then helped her get set up on doing some family history. It was a nice evening. We drove different routes over to their house and then back home. The number of homes that are decorated with lots of lights and other decorations seems to be more than it has been in recent years. I hope that is a sign that people are feeling better about everything.
At one point, we missed the turn so had to turn around. The neighborhood we drove into to turn around had the house with the best decorations we saw all evening. Just goes to show that all mistakes are not bad ones!
Seeing all the homes so brightly decorated is really a great way to feel the Christmas spirit!
