Where has 2015 gone? SERIOUSLY!

Thanksgiving is just around the corner...and that can only mean:

CHRISTMAS LIGHTS in my neighborhood!

Just the other day, I saw my neighbor FedEx Pat...

FedEx Pat last year...fulfilling the tradition. (Craig Allen photo).

...and he told me that he and his wife, Jen, are about to take all the Christmas light boxes out of the attic, and start looking through them...

The weekend after Thanksgiving is when Pat puts up his annual display.

Cornershow Bob starts putting up his display at around the same time...

...and he, and Ginni, continue to add to the merriment, right up Christmas Day!

I have been documenting this festive "Friendly Competition" on my "Craig's List" and the Weekend page here on NJ1015.com for several years.

This is something that my neighborhood looks forward to each year...as do you, my many readers here on the website!

Each year, new and BRIGHT and exciting additions are made to each display...

Bot Pat and Bob may need a few new strings of these... (Craig Allen photo).

And, guys, the "big box lot stores" would love to give you a helping hand!

Maybe some long-lasting L.E.D lights? (Craig Allen photo).


How about a few of these, just for variety? (Craig Allen photo).

And, thats just the LIGHTS...the strings of lights.

How about a visit from Rudolph? (Craig Allen photo).
Can you "Bear"ly stand it? (Craig Allen photo).

No doubt, both Cornershow Bob and FedEx Pat are putting thoughts to paper...planning their overall displays...plus, that something NEW and special that puts each display "over the top!"

I can't wait!

And, as always, I'll be standing by, camera in hand, documenting this neighborhood holiday tradition...just for YOU!

Oh...as I close..."just one more thing:"

Were I stringing the lights on a house...

Just right. For light. (Craig Allen photo).

...this would be about my size.
