This. This electrical fantasy is just a half a mile from our home.
This house is in Jamaica Plain.
We live in Brookline.
Not so many Christmas decorations up...not so many lights...a rare wreath or Christmas tree in the window can be spotted but the red and green around Brookline isn't so much. More subdued.
And that's okay. We're constantly fighting the behemoth of consumerism and frenetic pace of this holiday season...so, if we're sparing our kids the unrelenting lights and the decorations and the yuletide carols that's okay with us.
But on that occasion when we need a shot of that-in-your-face-Santy-Claus-holiday-spirit we drive by our neighbor's. KerPow!
