I prefer the long days of summer but at this time of year, I love the twinking holiday lights.  I thought it would be fun to give you quick tour Boston using the holiday lights as our guide.
 
I skipped work a little early and dashed over to Quincy Market just in time
to catch the cobalt blue sky of twilight.

 
The Christmas tree at Quincy Market.

 
Looking back toward Faneuil Hall seen faintly on the right,
the twilight last just about 15 minutes.
 

 
One of the Downtown Crossing stars.

 
The Boston Common Frog Pond is turned into a skating rink in winter.
 

 
It was nice to see so many people enjoying the night.



 
A view from the Boston Common toward Back Bay.
 

 
A beautiful Beacon Hill doorway.  Notice the apples and pinapple above the door!
 

 
The bridge across the pond in the Public Garden.
 

 
The trees that line the grassy mall down Commonwealth Avenue.
 
 

A peek inside a Beacon Hill townhouse.
 

 
It's fun to take a stroll down historic Charles Street in the dark
and see the shops all lit up.
 




 

 

 
Goods on Charles Street has vintage and unique items for the home.
It's always worth checking out.
 

 
Perhaps I need a present for myself!
 

 
Finally back home to enjoy the lights of the Christmas tree
and the high-definition Yule Log on cable.
 
The best thing about Winter Solstice is there's always brighter day ahead!
