I took my wreath down at Easter, I still have my fence lights up and on every night. Some Christmas things are still out. I think this makes what ever I am going through easier. The Season is year round and I know that he is with me always reminding me it will be better.

I forgot to update this the last few weeks on my trips home from my late shifts at work. This is an 11 mile trip.

December 11: I counted 120 houses with lights up

December 18: I counted 139

December 27: I counted 160

Never topped last years high of 170+

I think the lateness of Thanksgiving contributed to the lower counts this year, I will continue to count until the counts get too depressingly low.
