It was 78F today in Phoenix, a new record for the date. Sort of makes it hard to get into the Christmas spirit, with no winter to remind me it's almost here. But three hours after the sun set I decided to take an evening walk. I took my camera and fastest lens, and set out looking for Christmas decorations.

Here are a few of the houses I saw. Does this look like your neck of the woods too?

The lights look familiar, but the pics are missing about 3 feet of snow to look like here..

of snow to look like here..If you squint, it looks like there could be snow in those settings.

Very festive.

Where I live we're too busy foraging for acorns and roadkill to celebrate Christmas.




Hey buddy, you gonna eat that?
