Christmas Lights Trolley, December, 2018

Jan 9, 2019 | News

On a cold and windy night, twelve TIAA members bundled up to go Christmas lights hunting — and found millions of them. We hopped on one of the trolleys to tour beautiful Highland Park while munching our candy canes and listening to our funny trolley driver (wearing reindeer ears) discuss the various displays.  We saw several Santa with reindeer (or a bulldog in one case) pulling sleighs, a second-story window with a Grinch staring at us, lots of nutcrackers, one house with a mail box dedicated to Santa letters, hundreds of trees lined to the very tip top with colored lights (some had been decorated every year since the '30s), red-white-and-blue lit USA flags, nativity scenes and Jerry Jones' white house which is set back from the street but very beautifully lit. The trolley stopped at one house so we could disembark and take pictures of an automated, revolving, lighted carousal before returning to TI.
