The Miracle on 34th Street, Hampden, Baltimore, Maryland
You stroll down Chestnut Avenue, and take a left on 34th Street, and suddenly evening turns to almost day. The houses are lit, and the street is bustling with people. Maybe it's tacky, but you have to admire the spirit of the folks on 34th Street, who have been doing this for years. Everyone should see this at least once.
These photos were taken in December of 2004. As of 2009, the tradition lives on, and shows no signs of letting up (http://www.christmasstreet.com/). Click on the images to see the larger versions. My favorites were the Christmas tree made of hubcaps, and the sleigh pulled by eight crabs, all carrying tins of Old Bay (too bad the picture didn't turn out).
