Luminaries @ Golf Course Acres

This year is the 33rd Annual Light Up and will take place on Saturday, December 17, 2011. At dark thirty.

These photos were taken in 2008 in front of my house in Elizabethton, TN. I wish I could find pro photos taken of these lights because my cellphone just doesn't do it justice. It really is a magical evening with everyone driving around with their parking lights on and neighbors in their yards and street all afternoon and evening. Mother and I made us an eggnog cocktail and sat back and watched the traffic come by.

I know it's nothing grand but I like the charm of small town tradition and it's traditions like these that have been a part of my holidays for 30+ years now.

There is a lot to be said for "tradition"! Sweet
