Holiday: Christmas Lights In The Hallway


One joy of the winter season is using candles and lights to bring warmth and well, light to our homes.  It is dark here now at 5:00pm and I love going around turning on soft ambient lighting and enjoying candles burning. 

A favorite way to bring light to our home at this time of year is through hanging up strings of Christmas lights.  Rachel has a string hanging from the upper bunk in their room and it lights up her space on the lower bunk.  Kyle has a small string of icicle lights hanging over his bed.  Soon we will have our tree up and garlands 
and lights galore. 

This year we decided to try a new idea we saw on Pinterest.

 I bought some Command Strips and Tim helped up hang up some old icicle lights in our small, but darkish hallway.

 They go all the way down the hallway we all really like how it looks, even with a section of the lights out. (frown)  I'm going to pick some up this week to have all the lights working.  It makes the hallway feel magical.

I'm thankful for fresh and fun ideas, to help banish the darkness.  We will be celebrating the LIGHT of the World entrance into humanity soon.  I love this time of year.
