My cousin Scott (aka Ford) came down to Long Beach to spend Christmas with me. As soon as it got dark, we made the trek to Naples (it’s about a mile from me) to see all the holiday lights by the canals. As usual, some of the homes went all out with a crazy amount of lights. Many homes had several decorated trees.
I forgot my tripod and just took very quick pictures as we walked by the homes. However, there are a few that turned out okay so I thought I’d share them with you…
Although this one was very pretty, it reminds me of a display window for a shop.
This one had lots of fake snow in their display.
I guess that’s the closest thing to snow that
Long Beach will ever see!!
This one had several disco balls and disco Christmas music playing and a bubble machine. Steve Rubell would be so proud.
Of course, there were lots of animals. Pictured above are some polar bears (that remind me of the coca cola bears), a Christmas frog that I snapped mainly for my Mother, two white swans, and the last house had penguins, three flying pigs with halos and Snoopy. There were lots of reindeer. This one below was one of my favorites.
The new trend in fake trees this year appears to be vintage-looking trees with frosted tips to look like snow. I think some of them are cashmere. I liked these because they were at least a little different, instead of being really full like all the ones I‘ve seen around, they were slim.
Many nutcrackers in this window display.
I really love all the beachy Santas. I doubt that I’ll see many (if any) of these next year.
Here’s one of the big winners.
Well, I hope you all enjoyed my pictures of the holiday lights in Naples!!
