I remember one year, I was maybe 8, we drove down from Hickory to see the lights. I fell asleep in the car and my mom woke me up. I remember thinking that it was the most BEAUTIFUL town I have ever seen. Every house, and I mean EVERY house, is lit up. The city pays for the power that month (or so I have been told). The city decorates the entire town.
I absolutely LOVE driving around and looking at the lights. I MAY or may not have started the kids screaming "CHRISTMAS LIIIIIIGHTS!!!" every time they see them. You can't prove I did.
I have never been able to
Now. I know what you are thinking. "Hey Sarah. Those look like 3-D glasses!" You are spot on. They are. But they aren't "traditional" 3-D glasses. More on that in a minute. I have to keep the suspense going!
Something that I find awesome about these glasses is that they come in the traditional form AND they come on a stick. What is that good for you ask? Have you ever tried to wear 3-D glasses when you wear normal glasses? No? Let me tell you, it is NOT fun. I don't wear glasses, but my favorite men in my life do. (Eric and both boys) With the glasses on a stick they can just hold them up to their faces and they don't have to worry about them staying on over their glasses!!
You can see V modeling that here:
She is always fully accessorized. lol
Now, I mentioned before that these aren't "traditional" 3-D glasses. Here is why. Here you see your light on a string. (I haven't pulled our Christmas lights down yet. You get purple Halloween lights)
Normal, everyday lights.
Now, let's hold a pair of rainbow glasses up to it. The next pictures are taken with my camera with the glasses held up against the camera lens. In real life this looks about 100 times more amazing.
INSANE, right? What's that? You like snowflakes?
I tried and tried to get a picture of the Santa ones. My camera was not allowing it. It did not want to focus properly.
Holiday Specs are INCREDIBLY priced. The paper ones you get 4 in a package. You get one of each: Snowflake, Santa, Snowman, and Reindeer. You can order them here for $22.47. That is three packs of 4, so 12 pairs total. It breaks down to $1.87 each.
