Merry Christmas

I’m in Texas for Christmas, where the state motto seems to be “What recession?”. People here pay for other people to come put up their Christmas lights. You would be amazed at the light displays $5000 or $6000 can get you!

But the granddaddy of all Christmas lights displays is hosted by Chesapeake Energy. According to my mom’s hair dresser, this year Chesapeake spent $600,000 on putting up their lights, and they are spectacular!

My family went to see the lights on Sunday night so I could take some pictures, but I forgot to change my camera lens before leaving the house, so I had trouble capturing the scope of the display. After struggling for half an hour to get a shot, I realized I wouldn’t be able to show you what it looked like, so I decided instead to try to show you what it felt like. I know these pictures are a little weird but I’m really happy with how they turned out.

Whatever you holiday you celebrate, I hope you have a day filled with peace, laughter and wonder.


  1. Merry Christmas to you as well. I hope you will be able to conquer your illness in 2013.

  2. I work down the street from Chesapeake’s home office in OKC. They do lights around their entire block. They’re very pretty, but they bother my old eyes, so I try to drive around them as much as possible. Up until a couple of years ago they were all static. Then they decided to make a few change color on the corner at the intersection. It scares the crap out of me every time I drive past there!

  3. cool pics
    hope your christmas is merry and FUll of JOY

  4. I can’t explain why but these pictures are PERFECT!! Maybe because now that I am older, if I don’t have my glasses on, my lights look a bit like this!! haha!. A very merry whatever to you and yours. Look forward to your return to the farm, sort of like a new year, whatever day that happens on, ‘eh?

  5. Can’t wait till you are HOME. I know you must be missing the farm extra this week. I’m glad you have pretty lights to distract you. :)

  6. Merry Christmas to you and yours! May all your Christmas wishes come true!

  7. I am also in OKC and the Chesapeake lights here are beautiful! They are very bright and intense, but amazing! The pics you took are perfect too!

  8. I love them! They do capture the feel.
