I love this! I know it can make you feel a bit down, cause its dark before you've even finished work, but its ok, this is one of those weird and special things about this season...just go with it!
It does mean that when you pass everyones lit up homes, you can be super nosey and look in and get a glimpse into someone elses world!
When I was little I used to see house lit up in the distance and think it was Bethlehem! Ah bless!
