Christmas tradition on Stratford Ave.

The whole neighborhood chips in for decorating the street!

A video posted by breakfastdesign (@breakfastdesign) on

On my sister’s historic street all the neighbors get together on Christmas eve to decorate with candles in sand filled bags up and down the street. The tradition started about 50  years ago and everyone participates.  100s of white bags with candles line the sidewalks and boulevards.

Viola has been doing this once before but this year was Frank´s first time.

Jens made a pretty neat video of it.  You can watch it above or on instagram @breakfastdesign
