I love looking at Christmas Lights

One of my favorite things about the holidays is looking at all of the houses decorated and all lit up. I personally don't go overboard with my house. I put up a few Christmas lights but that is about it. But I love and very much look forward to driving around a looking at all of the lights.

Every Year, we take a road trip to Baltimore City just so we can see the Christmas lights in Hampden (also called the Miracle on 34th Street.

Hampden Christmas Lights

One of the traditions in The Baltimore area is to go to downtown Baltimore and see the Hampden Christmas Lights. On 34th Street in downtown Baltimore there is an entire street of row homes that make the most beautiful Christmas display I have ever seen. Each row house decorates. It is probably the most beautiful Christmas light display anywhere in Baltimore.

When we lived in Baltimore we would go and look at the lights almost every year. Now that we live further away we haven't made it every year. But we do pile in the car and go visit the houses in our area and enjoy the wonderful Christmas Displays.

      It has long been tradition for us to drive around the city and suburbs looking at the beautiful Christmas lights and decorations. It just wouldn't be Christmas without the lights. It warms my heart to think the season is near upon us and the joys of the holiday are but minutes away! Time to shop online and avoid ALL of the mania of in-store crowds.
