jesus franklin

let's face it- would we enjoy christmas as much if lights weren't involved? and i am obviously referring to an eye raping of lights, not an overhead. it's what makes christmas pretty. behold the true CEO of christmas: so i for one would like to say thank you ben franklin, without you there would be no fucking christmas. ok, and you too baby jesus. but even you must admit that without lights the nativity wouldn't be as beautiful...

Some of these are so dreamy...love the lights and snow is so nice in pictures (and when you're watching it from the inside!) xo

I think people just get carried away with the whole light thing. Sometimes, simpler really is better.

Anita Davis said...

yes! it is about the lights. the tree wouldn't be nearly as magical without them!

Hi, just discovered your blog. You have a foul mouth. You are fucking hilarious. You also like design (an added bonus.) Merry Christmas.

That 4th pictures is definitely of commonwealth avenue in boston... I drove down it last night and it was SO pretty.

It also gave me major holiday guilt for still not putting out any decorations!

Love the lights.

ps Please bring back the pictures with your blogroll. I cheat, I basically use yours and the pictures are a great help.

You are so right, Jenny, it's all about the lights. It's killing me that I don't get to drape my entire house in twinkly lights right now. LOVE this roundup.

What a gift. Thank you.

Parisians must be so fucking smug at the holidays. I mean seriously - is there anything more amazing than Paris covered with twinkle lights??? Non.

AM I a totaly girly-girl if I declare the heart-shaped colored lights are the most beautiful things I have ever seen?

Aren't Christmas lights the bomb? I love them. We're heading out tonight for a drive to the ritzy parts of Dallas to see their bacchanalia of lights. Can't wait.
