In Alameda, there is a street called Christmas Tree Lane that lights up every home for the holiday season. Even though Caitlin and I don't have kids, we knew this was something we would enjoy. We parked a block away and decided to walk down the entire block in order to soak up the magic of the square.
We took tons of pictures of displays that we loved, or ones that we wanted to replicate one day when we have a home. We loved some of the super elaborate homes and some of the more simpler ones too.
I'm a big fan of Christmas movies and stories, so I was thrilled to see a Nightmare Before Christmas display, and the Bumble and Yukon Cornelius from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
There is something special about Christmas lights that make you feel like a child again. This street was amazing since it even featured a real Santa in his sleigh that kids could visit and sit on his lap. I'm so glad we moved to Alameda when we relocated to the Bay. It has that small town feel that brings people together during the holidays. Next year, maybe we'll put up some lights and allow people to walk around our apartment and see all the cool decorations we have. :)
