Christmas Lights in My City

.
'Tis the Season
.
 
When carolers line up on the stoop,
.
.

Wreaths festoon the portals,
.
.
Garlands bedeck the doors,
.
.

And strings of lights
.
.

Trace images on house and fence.
.
.

In our city, these lights can be seen reflected on the river.

Along the banks of the Mighty Wisconsin you will find:
.
.
Santa's Sleigh with Helper Elves,
.
.

A Tall Toy Soldier,
.
.
The Christmas Grist Mill,
.
.
Ice Fishermen 
(A portrait of Fisherhubby and fishing buddy)
.
.

Jack in the Box,
.
.

A Carriage pulled by High Stepping Prancers
.
.

And the Christmas Train packed with
Presents for all the good boys and girls.

Merry Christmas!!!
.

Joining Unknown Mami

What others are sharing of their cities.

My city is Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin

The lights at night or so pretty and bright, but I do not drive at dark time.

Such pretty pics Keetha! Lights against the snow just can't be beat. We are losing our snow quickly here though.
Hoping for a little more for a white Christmas.
Hugs,

Believe It or Not we DO have WATER here in West Texas...The Concho River runs right through downtown San Angelo, and sports Christmas Light Decorations much like your Wisconsin Lake! So very pretty...all of your Christmas Light photos. Reminds me that it's nearly time for a ride around town to see the lights. Hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas!!! Thanks for stopping by CITexas Gal.

Simply awesome. Just like in movies.

Looks like the town gets very involved in the Christmas light displays. The fisher hubby one is great.

Joanna Jenkins said...

It's been years since I've seen carolers like those! They used to be very popular a hundred years ago when I was a kid. That a nice surprise.
Happy SIMC and Merry Christmas,

I love all the lights, but the ones reflected in the water are pretty special.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

They are all so pretty. Love the choir, so retro!

nancygrayce said...

How pretty and wasn't it sweet of Fisherhubby to let them put lights all over him!

Beth said...

Hi Keetha, You captured some pretty lights! My favorite is the house with the long front porch, and the lights reflected on the river. Merry Christmas, Keetha!

Christmas in your city has to be amazing! Pretty lights and decoration. I miss Christmas atmosphere. In Wisconsin is not snowing, is it? In my homecountry, we had snow in November but now we haven't, unfortunately.
Marry Chrismas!
