In comparison to the colorful and whimsical Christmas lights of the Florida Botanical Gardens, New England lights tend to be more low key. The traditional lights are candles left in the window and many of the buildings (homes, churches, meeting houses) still do this.
Here is a gazebo lit up with a tree. I like the evergreen garland woven through the posts.
The Town Hall
Buildings lit up for the evenings.
Balconies lit up with lights, garland and white lights.
Woodcrest Assisted Living really decorates for their residents.
The Art of Nature did an usual display with a tree and star lights. Very striking.
