My dear wife Karen and I are fans of Lights on the Lake. The past several years, we’ve taken the chance to stroll along the path at Onondaga Lake Park when they’ve opened the annual blazing-lights tradition along the trails on the shore. We’ve even taken Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle.
Now that I work at the Liverpool Public Library, two blocks up from the very lake and trail, I visit frequently. In fact, my boss Diane has already begun talking to me about how busy it will be around our place the days when folks are invited to walk along Lights on the Lake. In November. Almost two months from now.
Imagine my suprise at lunch this week when I spotted …
… green grass … turning leaves … and Christmas light displays.
Talk about a three-season mix.
Diane worked at the Parks Department before coming to the library. When I mentioned my discovery to her, she told me that workers like to get the displays ready along the trail while the weather is good. Makes sense. I guess.
Would the spotting of Christmas lights now spook you? When do you think they’ll put the displays in the ground? If you do, when will you hang your holiday lights?
