Sometimes It's the Little Things

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

A few years ago, during the holidays I drove through the Greater Sacramento community of Sunriver, in Rancho Cordova. I noticed residents had decorated the street signs.  It has become an annual tradition.

I captured a few pictures this morning.  No two posts are alike!  Sometimes it's little things that add to seasonal cheer!

That's a great idea for a community. I will try to pass that around!

Myrl I like that, it would be nice if more towns and cities did that as well.

I like the idea of decorating street sign posts for the holiday season.

Our nieghborhood used to be known for great lights and still some aprticipate, so it is always good to see a community acting together and being creative.

Surprised the PC police allow that to happen.  Might be offensive to someone who doesn't celebrite Christmas. Personally, I love it.

Myrl, love your slideshow! What do you use for that? Vernonia decorates no matter the season and they really rally around having all of their shop windows festive and lights along main street. Things like the candy canes, they do as well. I don't have a photo darn it!

Chris Ann Cleland - Actually, the folks who run the City of Rancho Cordova, encourage the decor!

What a great idea! Flower Mound has strict regulations about putting anything on city property. But I wonder if residents here could persuade them to do similar pole decorating. It really livens up the subdivision and brings about a sense of joy and cheer!

I like your various photo shots. You live in an area where there are many creative and fun loving people! It's no wonder why you fit in so well, you're full of fun and creativity and you're so, so smart!

We have light posts decorated for the holidays in Land Park, too. Some of us Realtors put them up and others are hung by homeowners. Of course, I'm not in Sacramento this Christmas but I've done my part at our house in Hawaii. I hung wreaths with red ribbons on either side of our garage door. LOL.
