It is such a busy time of year for everyone that sometimes you can get lost in the hustle and bustle of Christmas decorating, shopping and baking.

Every year I try and get things done early but I still seem to run out of time. If you are like me you get your shopping done through the day and you just want to be home in the evening putting your feet up, drinking a cup of tea and watching Christmas movies.

Unfortunately this can mean missing the beautiful Christmas lights that decorate your city or town.

I picked my husband up from work the other night and was driving through our town and got to see all of the lovely lights and decorations. They were so wonderful and really made me realize how much I was missing by not getting out in the evenings just to see the sights of the lights.

Whether you live in a big city or a little town the decorations are worth a trip to see.

I don't think we will have snow this Christmas, not like this anyway, but I am still going to enjoy taking some nights out just to see the lights in the neighbouring towns and cities. We will grab a cup of hot chocolate and find a bench and if there is a Christmas Faerie she will shower us with a little snow one evening.

All your pictures remind me so much of Europe, as I lived in Germany for a while and I've been to England, Scotland and Wales five times during the holidays.
