Shopped at QFC about an hour ago, and walked across the street just to see the beautiful lights. All the trees were lit w/white lights, and the big conifer(?) that becomes our Christmas tree had colored lights. It gets so dark so early now, and even earlier next month, that lights really make the dark months much cheerier.
When I lived in Alaska in the ’90’s, the mayor of Anchorage-if I remember correctly-started a tradition of putting up white lights in fall and winter to brighten things up during the almost 19 hours of darkness. I was glad to see that had spread to Seattle, too.
