Local homes glow with holiday lights

Scripps Ranch neighborhoods are glowing this holiday season with fun lights along houses and trees, and whimsical animated figures on lawns. Homeowners are showing their spirit with a pleasant array of light displays this year.

While Scripps Ranch may not have a "Candy Cane Lane," many local residents have gone out of their way to decorate the outside of their homes with very tasteful displays that really highlight their neighborhoods with a beautiful holiday glow.

Some have special twists that are reminiscent of the unique California lifestyle, especially the strings of lights winding their way up the trunks of palm trees. In fact, a cheerful outside holiday party was seen underway in a delightfully lit and decorated backyard just a few nights ago.

Take some time this season to enjoy and appreciate some of these displays. They are not hard to find and they truly add to the warm feeling of the holidays.
