Celebrating the Light

Lights add brilliance to the holiday season. At Disneyland you’ll find lights upon lights this time of year. I’d heard that Small World is especially charming all lit up. During the day, the huge front of this attraction is white — all white. I was anxious to see the transformation from white to colored lights. As soon as the sun set, we headed over to Small World. The sky was a mix of gray and blue and the lights were on but not at all impressive. We left for dinner and came back later, when the sky was finally totally dark. The first sight of the massive wall of twinkling reds stunned me.

Once the sky was black, the lights were spectacular.

Christmas is the time we celebrate the light coming to a dark world. It’s in the darkness that the light radiates most effectively. The contrast is what shows off the beauty.

Wishing you light in all the dark corners of life as you celebrate this holiday.

Silent night, holy night, Son of God, Love’s pure light . . .

Linking up with Sweet Shot Tuesdays and Texture Tuesdays. Texture used is Kim Klassen’s If Only with Color Burn.
