Tonight my family and I went to a friend's house to see her lights and tree. Outside she has over 80,000 lights and displays! People drive purposely to see the display!
But this is her inside tree: WOW! Here is it with just the tree lights for illumination.
And here it is using flash. Now...believe it or not...this tree is 7.5 feet tall and--wait for it--8.5 feet wide at its fullest! Hard to imagine! There are 700 lights on it and what must be tons of tinsel. The tinsel is placed in almost pyramid-like shapes which overlap, creating almost a gossamer net effect.
Truly beautiful! How's your holiday afterglow? I've spent the day reading (Red Mist by Patricia Cornwell) and napping, and hand sewing binding on a large wallhanging that you'll see soon.
