Christmas Lights Up Wellsboro!

Admire the incredible light displays of these Wellsboro residents!

 

by Sara Vogt - December 18, 2014

This is the season of lights. It began with the birth of Jesus, when the wise men followed the light of His star. Later, Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me, will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” In the book of Matthew, scripture reminds us that as believers, we are the light of the world and are called to let our light shine before others – that they may see our good deeds, our acts of kindness and love, and glorify our Father in heaven. Bright, beautiful reminders of His love for us can be seen during the Christmas season as people everywhere find creative ways to light up this world.

Today we visited two homes decorated for the Christmas season with wonderful light displays. First, we went to the residence of Bill and Harriet Williams, whose home is on Niles Road off Mount Zion Road. Over their 43 years of marriage they have placed their family as their core. When their daughter wanted to do outside Christmas lights many years ago a new tradition began for their family. Their home in Wellsboro (that we visited today) has been decorated for the past eighteen years. Usually, the family does most of the decorating, which now includes their son, daughter and son-in-law. Over the years (on occasion) friends have also helped to make the home festive. They chose the classic Christmas colors of green, red and white. This year there are at least 80,000 LED bulbs that light up the sky! (Bill stopped counting after that number). They really enjoy having the community come out and see the lights. You may even see someone in the house wave to you as you drive by! They want to give happiness and brightness to the community and many who have seen their lights would agree that is what happens when they visit. If you have not seen the Williams’ lights, we would encourage you to make it one of your new Christmas traditions.

We also visited the home of Jennifer and Aaron Mosher, whose lights can be seen on Broughton Hollow Road off of Stony Fork Road. They really enjoy Christmas lights and for the past three years have been doing this decorating as a Christmas gift for each other. Aaron starts getting all of the lights out in October and checks them for any problems. In November he starts putting them up and usually completes the job in about 40-50 hours. Jennifer’s favorite lights are the ones that were handed down to her from her grandfather. She has many wonderful childhood memories associated with the lights and cherishes them. Aaron also received lights from his grandfather that are still used to this day to celebrate the season. We would also encourage you to see Aaron’s light work as part of your Christmas tour.
