We had a small get together at my place on Friday night and prior to the party I put holiday lights on our back deck. One of my other neighbors has colored lights on his deck and tonight I noticed another neighbor in the process of hanging lights along the edge of his roof. I think lights add a nice touch and get people into the holiday spirit.

In the photo below you can see my lights as well as one of the holiday traditions here in the bay area. If you look out the center panel window, you’ll see the Alcatraz lighthouse, and just above it to the right is a bright light. This is a tree lit at the peak of Angel Island, which is the island across from Alcatraz — and on clear nights you can see it from all around the bay.
