Tonight we took the kids to look at Christmas lights. Some oohing and ahhing, some how did they do that's and some scrooges with dark houses and yards.
I'm all for those people who decry the commericalism and consumerism that surrounds Christmas. It's easy to get lost in elves, and santa, and food, and presents...I get all that and it's important to keep it in mind. But some of these displays -- the work, the time, the dedication, the storage space for when it's all over -- are amazing!
I wonder if some of it is ok...everything in moderation, right? It brought our family together.
Jesus is the reason, but that doesn't mean we can't fill our yards full of lights and candy canes and snowmen does it?
