As the weather gets colder and the nights grow longer, there are visual reminders everywhere that a season full of traditions is beginning. What is common to most is the addition of lights.
They begin to appear as early as Halloween, when we place Jack-o’-Lanterns on our doorsteps to welcome those ghosts and goblins that are trick or treating. From then the lights begin to appear throughout our neighborhoods as people start to add lights to their homes, which glow with faith and light. This can even create spectacular displays on entire blocks.
