You know those light displays that you drive through?
I love them.
But sometimes you get an incredibly slow driver in front of you. Obviously I don't expect anyone to rush through the lights--but when you stop at every display to take photos for at least three minutes, it can get annoying.
For instance, the display was just beginning and the car in front of us stopped. We heard someone shriek, "It's Jesus!" and a second later there was a flash from the camera in the car.
Her hysteria made me wonder if the real Jesus was coming and I mentally went through my life choices. Yeah, I'd probably get into heaven. But then I realized she was talking about the lighted display of the nativity scene.
"Should we spoil it and say she'll probably see Santa too?" I asked.
She stopped at every display. At one point she got out and snapped a photo. It was of Santa in an airplane.
"I guess it was more exciting than Jesus?" I wondered.
Sometimes I've seen children placed on top of car roofs like we're in a Flintstone's episode. It doesn't seem exactly safe. What if a child goes tumbling off?
We'll continue to go through the light displays, of course. We just always hope we're not behind someone who feels the need to take a photo of every light.
Do you drive through light displays?
