Spectacular Holiday Lights In the Area – Chip Kelly, Vince Papale, Muhammad Ali & Joe Flacco’s Neighborhoods Lit Up

Over the past week I went out on my annual holiday light tours, being a visual guy I’ve always enjoyed Christmas and the lights that celebrate the season. When I was a kid I was in charge of putting up the Christmas lights on our house. I was always sad when the season was over and I’d have to take them down and store them in the attic til the following year. I was happy when those white bulb candles became popular and were placed in the windows of houses throughout the year.

Cherry Hill is made up of a series of neighborhoods Woodcrest, Barclay Farms, Wilderness Acres etc. I lived in Charleston Ridings, this video is from Lucerne, which is a new development down the street from where I lived. When I was a kid it was a farm field I used to ride by on my bike to get to my job at the gas station on Rt 70. I always thought Ichabod Crane was going to ride out of the field and snatch my head on those late nights when I rode my bike home from work.
