All Lit Up

Today we thought we'd talk about lights. Specifically the South Asian tradition of stringing lights all over the house during wedding festivities. There's something so sweet about the idea of family and community coming together and basically telling the whole world that yes, there is a wedding happening! It really gets the celebration started - with the whole block buzzing with excitement leading up to the big events.
But do you think you would follow this tradition out here? Or do you think you lose a bit of the magic without the whole neighborhood participating in the festive mood? What do you think about just putting up a few strings of lights, in a nod to the tradition? We'd love to hear your thoughts!
