Christmas Decorations at Wasilla Lake

Quote the McDonalds' ravens, "Merry Christmas! Now give us some french fries!"

Despite some pretty strong winds coming at me across the lake, it was still a pretty day at Wasilla Lake. There's a string of lights atop the posts in the ice, btw, which help light impromptu hockey games and ice skaters.

I didn't notice it at the time, but sure looks like a picnic table or bench stuck out on the ice to the right, doesn't it? I need to remember to check this out next time I'm past there.

Even without the mystery and charm that night gives the decorations, they are bright and cheerful reminders of the season.

Frosty seems to be auditioning to join Smoky the Bear in his campaign against forest fires!

These were what caught my eye the other night as I drove past. Not quite the same effect during the day, but still pretty and I thank the City of Wasilla for making the effort to add something to our holiday.

If my fingers hadn't already been frozen by the winds, maybe I'd have thought to take out the Flip camera and catch this scene with it. It'd have shown the bushes dancing and swaying in the wind! Merry Christmas, Everyone!

I love the decorations they put up. It makes me smile every time I drive into Wasilla during the Christmas season and see them. I'm hoping to go by there tomorrow and get some pics of them myself!
