Sparkles in Xintiandi

18 Dec

Another one of my favorite decorations during this holiday time in Shanghai is the white lights that surround Xintiandi park.  Each evening as I walk home from work I am surrounded by their twinkles.  The reflections on the water with the apartments behind make the walk home even more soothing than normal.

Xintiandi stars

We’ve had some cold weather (close to freezing), and it was even cold and clear for quite a while.  Those nights, if I looked closely I can just pick out a couple of real stars far above in the night sky.  With Christmas coming that has even more meaning.

Twinkle, twinkle little star…

What twinkles in your life?

    Your photos are great. I wish I could go out and take some pictures this season, but that’s not happening!

      Well, that was taken with my phone, so I think you could still find a few minutes. Careful with the blizzard warnings in Chicago over the next few days!

    87 deg F in Corpus Christi today. I should probably give up my hope for a white Christmas…

      Well, heard you may be heading northwards so perhaps you’ll have a white new year!
