Everett: A City of Lights

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

By Peter A. Napolitano

  It is amazing how a little light in these dark times can have an uplifting effect on all of us. I am not talking about the main streets or our intersections, though in this regard the City of Everett has led the way. I am talking about the number of residents who have taken the time and investment to decorate their homes and to spread this uplifting light throughout our neighborhoods. As someone who has been decorating my house for more than three decades, it is a labor of love when parents walk or drive by with small children to look and point. It helps fill us all with the peace and joy of the season. We as a community have always had a decent number of houses decorated for the holidays but these past two years in spite of COVID, many of our residents have done the same and with some very intricate displays. It’s common knowledge that Saugus has been the place to go locally to see holiday lights, but there are many homes in Everett that can hold a candle (no pun intended) with those long running displays. I encourage everyone to get out and see the work your neighbors have done and share the feeling of goodwill that enhances the spirit of the holidays before it’s time to take the lights down. My family and I wish everyone a heartfelt Season’s Greetings and a Happy New Year! Stay safe.
