Excellent pictures. They make me feel sort of nostalgic and a bit homesick. I remember the first time I saw them light that tree. I was so little and had no idea why we had taken such a long ride, although I did get to eat McDonalds in the car, why my father wouldn't put me down, he kept saying he didn't want to lose me, why were standing there shivering in the cold while listening to a bunch of 'old' people blah, blah, blah, and then there was silence and my father whispered in my ear, "Watch. This is it." and everything illuminated. It was wonderful. I saw it a few times after that but nothing compared to the first time, even though the lights are better now, the decorations much more fabulous, there was just something so magical about that first time.
Oh Shawn! Those photos are JUST BEAUTIFUL!!!! That must have been so amazing in person...I just can't even imagine...I love the angels and snowflakes. Those snowflakes are just hanging out there...I love that!Thank you for sharing those...it's great to see some of the sites you saw while there...so worth the sneezes, huh?
WOW Rayne! Thanks so much for sharing that memory of yours! What a special moment. I was once at the lighting of the Tree in front of the White House back when George Senior Bush was president. We didn't know the "this is it"moment.. because were so far back in the crowd, we missed that magical moment. Thanks for sharing yours with me!Thanks Doodlestreet! It really was a beautiful evening. I wish I could say it was worth the sneezes, (cause I kinda like sneezes!) but really it was worth the deep coughs and high fever to wander those frosty cold streets. :O)
WOW! you did good! great shots.
Well, it doesn't get more Christmasy than that. Beautiful! You must have had an amazing time.
