A few days ago, on a cold evening, my family and I bundled up and went on a stroll to Candy Cane Lane. Candy Cane Lane is blocks of houses lit up with Christmas lights and fascinating decorations. After you see these images, I think you will be just as amazed as I was looking up at the lights.
Candy Cane Lane started in 1952, when some homeowners decided to amaze the community with a display of holiday lights and decorations. There success has been ongoing since with blocks of lights to see. One house even hired a Santa to visit and take pictures with kids in his sleigh. Some people come from hours away just to see these extraordinary sights. It was good we arrived early because as we were driving back, the exit from the freeway was lined with miles of cars waiting to exit and see the lights!
There were lines of cars seeing the lights with many kids standing on the seats popping there heads through the convertibles. Viewing the lights was amazing, but walking and viewing the lights was even better. The best decorated houses had music playing. There was even a building with a train in front of it puffing out thick clouds of smoke. Some houses even had a motorized seesaws and merry-go-around spinning. Others had a display of blown up Santas riding on motorcycles, sleeping in bed, and skiing. Even after seeing all the houses, I still couldn't decide which one was my favorite. I think the neighborhood did a fantastic job of making the holidays special and exciting! Hopefully, I will come back next year and take another stroll through the neighborhood!
