Christmas decorations and icons light up the nights with themes of joy, trees, and bright stars.

Christmas lights decorations lights up the night on the ocean and harbor homes that celebrate the holiday season in Huntington Beach. In the picture above, part of the Christmas events photo gallery, you can see the water reflecting a deep red or gold around the docks parked in front of some Huntington Harbour homes..

One lighted display in the picture that says "JOY" is a word and thought often associated with Christmas. It usually offers a religious connotation in this context of the winter season, and reflects on the water like the other symbols on houses next to it that include strings of lights shaped like a green Christmas tree, and a bright, five pointed star topping a house.

If you want to do something special during Christmas and the pre-season, go by yourself or take friends and family to one of the boat cruises that line the coast from San Diego to San Francisco and beyond. For a reasonable fee, those without ships, yachts or boats can be driven around and given a guided tour of the stunning light displays that unleash the imagination.  As you watch the colors drip in the water in patterns that move and pulsate like their earthbound counterparts, you find yourself releasing your stresses of the day and simply "being" and en-"joy"-ing.

It is only during November and December that Californians and visitors to the West Coast state are treated to such spectacular displays on such a wide scale. If you think of visiting and taking such a tour, bring a coat.
