The Christmas Lights are Up!

The lights in the neighborhood, that is. The city center is covered with beautiful white Christmas lights and even in the daytime there is something special about them. We took a walk last night for groceries and the Ponte Vecchio looked so pretty all lit up! I hate to be corny, but it really did look quite magical.

The lights in our neighorhood haven't come on yet -- have the ones in the historic center come on yet? I'm starting to wonder if there is some big celebration where the lights get switched on. Anyone know?

P.S. Our episode of House Hunters International aired last night. Friends and family (people required to be nice to us) say we looked slightly normal and not overly obnoxious. Yay! If you just found us after watching the episode and this is your first time reading our blog, click here.
