Seeing Neighborhood Christmas

Christmas decorations on someone's property

Not too far from where I live, is the town of Ambler. Near the campus of Temple University Ambler, is someone who would really go all-out on Christmas decorations. As a result, it has become a local tourist attraction, and can get crowded at times.

I parked at the university, and walked to the house. Getting to that home was tough and dangerous, as there is not much of a walking path to get there. Just getting beside the parked cars on the street, though that area was sometimes too narrow, so I had to walk along the side of the street with cars passing by. And it was getting dark, so the drivers may have a hard time seeing.

Once I got there, the lights have not come on yet. I had to wait until they did come on. And when they did, it was such a nice sight to see. I walked around the property, seeing the various Christmas light decorations, which you can see in the photos. I can't imagine the electric bill, but this made me get into more of a Christmas mood. And being unseasonably warm kind of helped as well.

After walking around a couple times, I went back to the car, and back home. I have considered taking a neighborhood tour of seeing the various Christmas decorations at homes.

I'm sure some are however the people who do raise for charity usually have a sign with the cause on it.

That's nice to hear. I always thought the donations were mainly to help pay the electric bill.

The lights look beautiful.

A few of the houses in my town do their yards up beautifully and raise money for charity (e.g. the animal shelter.)
