Happy New Year for 2012!

January 1, 2012

A bright pink card from our neighborhood organization appeared in my mail today, thanking me for “making the holidays brighter in our Forest Knolls neighborhood by lighting up your home.”

Yes. Though we decorate for ourselves, we’re really decorating for other people… and in the process, creating a sense of celebration. So I’d like to continue what has become a tradition* here  and publish a selection of lights around our neighborhood. (It’s a selection and not comprehensive; I may have missed some homes, and my camera missed some others, giving me only a bright blur…clicking on a picture takes you to a larger version.)

And here’s wishing everyone a wonderful year ahead in 2012. Happy New Year!

[*This website has been around long enough to actually talk of a tradition! This is the third holiday season.)

    Honestly, Ms Webmaster, you, yourself, are a bright star for your Forest Knolls neighborhood. I am so impressed, and envious of your site and constant enthusiasm. We are a contiguous neighborhood — and without such a vibrant spokesman. You do a WONderful job reporting your neighborhood’s happenings, concerns, news, opinions, photos, et cetera. Congratulations on your *third* holiday season! Bravo, thank you, and Happy New Year.

      Why, thank you! and Happy New Year to you, too!

      Maintaining this site has made me so much more aware of what a great neighborhood this is. I’m looking forward to another year.

    Hi Webmaster,

    Great newsletter!

    We decorated our house too, and while we definitely have to bow to some of the fantastically-decorated homes in these photos, we think our place might also deserve a photo in your newsletter. If there’s still time to get our place included, please email me and we’ll turn our lights on for you!

      Absolutely! I’d be delighted to add in any others I missed, too. Email me an address (at fk94131@yahoo.com) and I’ll take a photo and add it here. Or even better – email me your own photograph and I’ll put it up here. (Don’t worry if it’s too large, I can reduce its size.)
