Holiday scavenger hunt while looking at lights

See also

City sidewalks busy sidewalks .
Dressed in holiday style
In the air
There's a feeling
Of Christmas
Children laughing
People passing
Meeting smile after smile
And on ev'ry street corner you'll hear

Silver bells silver bells
It's Christmas time in the city
Ring a ling hear them sing
Soon it will be Christmas day

Strings of street lights
Even stop lights
Blink a bright red and green
As the shoppers rush
Home with their treasures

Growing up, one of my favorite Christmas activities was strolling up and down the neighborhoods watching the lights and decorations. As a parent with two extremely competitive boys who were not so sure about this event I created a game in which we all could play while looking at the lights. A holiday scavenger hunt, prizes for all who participate, those who find the most able to pick their prize first.

The following is a sample list of what we find in the neighborhoods of our town:

  1. Santa
  2. Reindeer
  3. Sleigh
  4. Red Lights
  5. Snowflake
  6. Disney Character
  7. Wreath
  8. Words in Lights
  9. Mrs Claus
  10. 8 tiny reindeer
  11. Santa Bag
  12. Green Lights
  13. Candy Cane
  14. Manger
  15. Baby Jesus
  16. Icicle Lights
  17. Christmas Tree
  18. Christmas Star
  19. Cross
  20. Bells
