It’s never Thanksgiving without watching the Macy’s Christmas parade. I even got to see the parade from the street side in New York City in the late 1990s with my mother and grandmother. The parade was rivaled by one thing in NYC’s streets: the stores’ Christmas decoration. Christmas trees glowed from about every shop and restaurant’s windows and large candy canes even towered over the sidewalk acting as a hotel’s awnings. It has been a decade since but a December night in Oxford gave me some deja vu.
Last night my fiance and I looked something like this while enjoying the Christmas decorations in Oxford. Window shopping is fantastic at this time of the year.
I chose ten of my favorites in no ranking order from 60 photos of lights I took around town.
I also created a gallery of other lights and trees that I enjoyed.
Happy Holidays y’all!
