The holiday spirit.

These last few years, Christmas has never been a big priority for me. I usually bring in a branch that fell off someone else's tree, and I might buy a box of mandarin oranges, and I go to Regina for a weekend. That's about it.

Yesterday, though, it was almost as if my heart grew three sizes too big. For the very first time ever: I've put up Christmas lights!

Truly, my cup of eggnog runneth over.

Those are some pretty sweet looking lights too. The reflection in the door looks perfectly ghostly (in the good way).

A handy tip I learned in Ottawa: LED Christmas lights are the way to go.

A handy tip I learned in Medicine Hat: If you wait until one week before Christmas, LED lights are ridiculously cheap.
