WOW! Those are some beautiful picture's Lorn.

They don't decorate that much in the town where I live. Sad I know. However here are 2 video's that I found on youtube showing the Christmas lights at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge,TN and the other in Gatlinburg ,TN .These are about 45 minute's from me .

For those of you who don't live in the US and may not know ,Dollywood is an amusement park owned by Dolly Parton. Around Christmas the only ride's open are the train ride and the merry go round .

Thank you for the Christmas pictures, Lorn-xx and Ms_Speedy_Elf!

Lorn-xx - The pictures you shared captured the magic of Christmas in the UK for me. Part of it is the mix of very old (the cathedral, and the town built around a "town square".) And part is the modern, current Christmas lights on top of the very old buildings. It is very soothing to me to think of Christmas being celebrated in that place, century after century.

Beautiful pictures, I love the cathedral picture. And the lights where the band is playing is so pretty.

Thanks for sharing.
