Earlier this month Betsy and I went to the Smokies and, after enjoying a day in the mountains, we met our friends Judy and Charlie for dinner and then a tour of the Christmas lights in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

Some of the lights were very straightforward and welcoming, letting us know exactly where we were.

We spotted an old watermill up on a mountainside.  There were even trees and a stream in lights.

Other displays were more fanciful.  We spotted mice running down a clock,

But in many ways the prettiest lights were on a traditional Christmas tree.

    How long are these lights up?

    We have a street here that the houseowners put up lights and the public go through the streets. Some houses even have juice and biscuits.
