Christmas Lights


Last night we went on a Luminaria Walk
 on the grounds of the Oldfields mansion.


We strolled the grounds and could see
the beautiful decorations inside.  Since
we had just toured the mansion on Sunday
we didn't go inside.


I had never been to Oldfields in
the dark before.  All lit up for
Christmas made it especially beautiful.


It was a bit rainy but not too
cold so we strolled through the
deserted gardens with only the
candles lighting our way.


In my hometown in New Jersey, everyone
would put out luminarias in front of their houses
on Christmas Eve.  It was very festive and
beautiful, especially in the snow.
I wonder if they still do that?


Then we went to downtown Indianapolis,
in the center of the city is Monument Circle.
At Christmas the monument is made into
a Christmas tree.


Beautiful stained glass windows
in the Cathedral.


There are still some great
old buildings downtown.


I hope you are enjoying the lights
of the season wherever you may be.
