"Christmas is the keeping-place for memories of our innocence."

The houses on my street are all decked for the holiday. Their Christmas lights cover houses and bushes and warm even the coldest winter nights. Some have white lights while others have a combination.

I tend toward colored lights, a throwback from my childhood. Back then the bulbs were huge. My dad would check the sets, replace the burned out bulbs then cover the front bushes and sometimes the railing.

In the little windows were orange candles and in the picture window was a multi-colored set of five. The tree was always in the corner of the living room so you couldn't see it from the road. My house has been dark except for the white candles in the windows.
