Christmas In OKC

As I've mentioned now, ad nauseum, we don't have a whole lot of time to stop for anything. So I bring you my photographs of Christmas light displays taken while on the move. They are all from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, visible from I-40 as you cruise through town.

This first one is a concrete mixer truck, completely covered with lights and showcased on a spinning pedestal:

This next one is probably my favorite; it's a line of spindly trees, each branch completely covered with tiny lights, that completely encircle a business complex. The effect in person is truly gorgeous; it's my favorite type of light display, when they cover trees so all you see is the outline:

And the last most fantastic display of lights, was from the Christmas In The Park display in Yukon, just outside of OKC at City Park and Chisolm Trail Park. The event features more than 1 million lights and 150 artistic displays. It's SO fantastic! We couldn't drive through it in the truck but we did drive entirely around the block and saw it from all sides. Of course, since we were moving at all times (there was nowhere for a truck to pull over) I had to take my pictures while on the go:

So although blurry, I think you get the point. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

PS: If you squint your eyes, they don't look quite so blurry. :)
