Only a few

We dragged three boxes of Christmas decorations out of storage yesterday, knowing we didn’t need them.

We’d already decided that a tree with ornaments would be too much hassle.┬áBut there were a few items we needed from those boxes.

We only wanted the lights.

Just plain, white lights. Simple candles (electric) in the front windows, a garland with bulbs around the front door, another string of bulbs running the length of the back deck, and more strands inside.

Tom was out running errands at dusk. I made sure that the lights were up before he returned in the dark, so that they’d be there to greet him.

Christmas is a simple holiday:

Cast light into the darkness.

Today’s penny is a 2014, because that year we loved the Christmas lights in the bedroom so much that we kept them up for four months.
