Chapala Christmas Lights


Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Billy and I took a walk around our adopted home town of Chapala, Mexico on Christmas Eve. What a beautiful display of lights!

The streets were fairly empty this night, and many restaurants were closed, leaving the decorative lights to take center stage without competition.

Take a look.

The kiosk at the Chapala Center Plaza

This is the kiosk in Chapala Centro. The Plaza Centro is a busy place with lots of the town's seasonal activities going on here. There are concerts, mobile art shops, dancing lessons on the weekends, and more.

Tonight the kiosk is lit up with blinking lights outlining the full structure.

Walking down a short distance towards the lake, is the government building. Here were some beautiful orange and golden hanging lantern lights that were eye-catching.

From this location, the lake is about 50 yards away.

Chapala's Church

In the center of the photo is Chapala's Church. A tall tree is lit up as a Christmas tree, and there are the three wise men and a creche.

A closer look at the creche

Here is a structure imitating the stable where the Bible says Christ was born. And of course there is the donkey and lamb (keeping time as in the song, Drummer Boy) and Joseph and Mary. Baby Jesus has not yet arrived in the manger, as it is only Christmas Eve.

A very high live tree in front of the Chapala Church was decorated as a Christmas tree. How did that star get UP there?

We're telling you, this is a very TALL tree! A fireman's ladder? A helicopter?

This gives you a little bit of a closer look at the Christmas tree trunk and the wrapped packages underneath it.

Chapala's Church is right over my shoulder.

Merry Christmas Everyone!
