A Kansas City tradition that I grew up with
And often participated in
Was the Thanksgiving Night lighting of the Plaza lights.
It's awesome to see the Plaza going from darkness to a lit wonderland
And the Plaza lights have always been part of our Christmas traditions.
And on Thanksgiving night at Linderhof . . .
We turn on our lights.
Always the big white lit wreath on the front of the house.
(Except last year -- with street construction, we kept dark --
the road was blocked and no one drove past!)
And this year we added:
These battery operated timed wax dipped tapers to the windows at Linderhof
They're quite pretty with the flame colored glow
One in each window in glass candleholders.
We think it looks festive for the season.
(To be added this weekend -- greens for the planters and window boxes)
We didn't have Thanksgiving at Linderhof
Alas, no turkey sandwiches tonight for dinner.
But our contribution to the Thanksgiving table was dessert
Pumpkin pie and these "Starbuck Cranberry Bliss Bars"
One of these bars and a glass of milk will be a perfect snack tonight!
