Two Ways to See the Holiday Lights

People in Dallas do the holiday decorating in a big way. A few years ago one neighborhood in Coppell painted all of the lawns white with fake snow – a level of excess I admire. This year, if you get a chance go on a carriage ride through Park Cities and see the lights. None of those Parkies hang their own lights, but the professional holiday decorators do an excellent (if impersonal) job.

This year the trend in holiday lighting is to outline the roofline of your house in white lights. I not only live in Dallas – I also fly over it frequently. (In an airplane, not under my own power.) Anyway, last week I flew in at about 10:30 pm. Flying across the prairie, house after house was outlined in sparkly white lights. It was wonderful. On behalf of all frequent flyers, I’d like to request that everyone keep their lights up this year.

    What, did you eBay your rocket-propelled backpack? That’s so weak. I hope the final value was worth it.

    The soon-to-be-Mr.PG used to take his little one down, all bundled up and with a thermos of cocoa, and go through the Park Cities in a pedi-cab. Anyone know if those are around this year?
