A “happy street”

Filed under: Winter — Tags: — montucky @ 10:24 pm

When our youngest daughter was very small we lived near one of the small towns just southeast of Phoenix, and my sister and her family lived quite a distance away in Phoenix itself. One night during the Christmas season as we drove through the city to my sister’s house, our little girl voiced her perceptions as we passed street after street of homes in various suburbs. The streets on which many of the homes displayed pretty Christmas lights, she loudly and excitedly proclaimed to be “happy streets”.

Now we live away from any town and our house is not on a what might be called a “street”, but we are always sure to have a small display of lights out front during the season so passing travelers will know they are passing a “happy street”.
