It’s Chrsitmas Time and you know what that means in the Brownie Home!! It’s time to drive up and down Jefferson to look at the Christmas Light Displays on the mansions! Whoot!

Barring the fact that we all covet the mansions and hope to live in a mansion and really wonder where people get the money to pay the taxes for the mansions in Detroit, let alone the utilities, mortgage and household maintenance…. BARRING ALL THAT….

We all really do enjoy the yearly drive Down Jefferson Avenue past the lake to Downtown Detroit in order to view all there is to be seen twinkling, shining and glowing as we pass by.

Granted, we can’t exactly stop in the middle of Jefferson Avenue to snap pictures, so many of them look like this…. 
Zooming by a mansion on Jefferson...
And this…. 

Zooming by another mansion

But, the memories and the decent pictures that I do get are enough to tide us over until next year. 

If you are ever in Detroit for the Christmas Holiday, be sure to hit the Hard Rock Café, Ride the People Mover, Ice Skate at Campus Martius and take the drive up Jefferson Avenue to covet the mansions.

It’s worth the trip.
