Christmas in the City

Tis the season for all that sparkles and shines brightly. It’s the time
for the city streets to be beautifully decorated, for the shop windows
to glisten with the holiday fun, for the Carolers to sing our favorite
Christmas carols, for the trees in our homes to be decorated with our
favorite bulbs, and the parties to be in full swing. This is the time of
year that we try to fit in as much as we can around town to celebrate
the holidays and all that goes with it. I just want to show some of the
photos I took of Christmas in the City.

Driving down Woodward with the Fox Theater in the distance. Detroit
really dressed up the city for the holidays this year. The beginning of
the city’s revitalization.

Downtown Rochester always dazzles us with their lights shining brightly
and their store windows aglow with the Christmas spirit. They even have
a Santa mailbox ready for all those letters to the North Pole.

Isn’t that the Leg Lamp from the movie, The Christmas Story?

The streets of Birmingham, Mi were lit with white lights throughout the
downtown area. This is a beautiful white Nativity scene set amongst
white lights adorning this Park.

Nothing is as lovely as the Edsel Ford House in Grosse Pte, Mich, home
of Edsel and Eleanor Ford, and Christmas time only makes it so much
more special.

Because you were not allowed to take photos in the home, I thought I
would show you pictures of their daughter, Josephine’s playhouse, every
little girls dream.

These were just a few photos of Christmas around the city that I wanted
to share with you. Christmas is drawing near and with all the festivities
in full swing, let’s take time to remember the real meaning of this holiday
and give thanks for all we have. Be safe, enjoy, and HAPPY HOLIDAYS.
