On the road I travel each day, there is a house that has been displaying Christmas lights since early October. I say, two thumbs up! It’s such a pick-me-up to enjoy those colorful lights on a night when I’ve been at the office later than planned…
Well, we’ve done the same here at Christmas Place – this has been a week of lighting up the courtyard for Christmas! I don’t have any after-dark photos yet, but here are some just-at-dusk pictures I caught yesterday.
Look at this handsome rig we have added below the clock.
You’ll also see some new elf friends alongside our reindeer.
I mean, don’t we all have our own cherry-pickers so we can light up the house and yard?? Hope you come down to see our lights, as well as the Winterfest lights that are on display all the way from Sevierville through Pigeon Forge to Gatlinburg.

P.S. May I share one more photo? I had the priviledge of attending a Salute to Veterans luncheon at the Dixie Stampede today, and was even seated next to the guest of honor, Sgt. Ed Douglas from just up the road in Morristown. His battalion cleared 2,500 miles of roads in Afghanistan last year, without any loss of life, even though they were bombed many, many times. (They also got to enjoy 8″ of snow for Thanksgiving, which we did not.) This Sunday is Veterans Day, and we hope that you will thank a veteran when you have the opportunity. Sgt. Douglas said that it is not a burden, but an honor to serve the U.S. The burden is in being away from family and friends. Thank you, Sgt. Douglas and all veterans! (Dad, two uncles, my sister, two brothers-in-law, and many personal friends – and now children of my friends – thank you!)
