Light the... Night?

Every year, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society holds an sponsored event called "Light the Night" in Winona Lake. It's quite the spectacle—about a thousand people streaming past our house in the dark, carrying lighted balloons and wearing LED badges that sparkle, pulling kids in wagons and chattering happily. They give out paper luminaries to houses along the route to light at 7:00 and add to the festive ambiance.

Problem is, we now have Daylight Savings Time in Indiana. (Don't get me started...) So all these people streaming past our house at 7:00 were doing so in plain daylight. I guess they had to keep it early enough to put the kids to bed at 8:00, but it sort of ruined the effect!
