Like many things in 2020, Christmas was weird. Neither Sean or I have family in town, so we typically hang at a friend’s house – enjoying delicious food, company, conversation and wine. Given the requirements to limit multi-home interactions during the holidays, we were on our own this year. We had to dig deep to stay entertained! We are completely burned out on Jigsaw puzzles….the news is depressing….and we are running out of shows to watch.
I would say at least 70% of our neighbors stepped up and decorated with holiday lights – it’s been so amazing. Sean came up with the idea to put Christmas lights on my bike and ride around the neighborhood to enjoy all of this cheer. It was a brilliant idea.
The lights were charged by an external battery pack we strapped to the back of the seat. We also had Christmas music – Sean found a mix on Spotify and let it rip on our Bose speaker attached to his handlebars. The music was our version of caroling – LOL.
We jumped on our bikes (with Yogi in tow) and cruised the brightly lit streets on Christmas Eve and Day to keep the holiday spirit alive as long as possible. The streets were quiet with the exception of the Peanut’s Christmas tunes on our speaker. Honestly, it was one of the most fun things we did all year!

Here are a handful of our favorites – Enjoy!
I hope you all had a great holiday season and have a Happy New Year! 2020 is almost behind us – I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
