Cruising down Christmas Tree Lane

The lights are on and strollers are caroling down Palo Alto's Christmas Tree Lane, the 1700 and 1800 blocks of Fulton Street, daily from 5 to 11 p.m. through Dec. 31.

Most visitors turn on their fog lights (low beams) and cruise at 5 mph to make sure they don't miss any of the decorated homes.

A tradition since 1940, the decorations and lights have been continuous for 71 years, with a couple of exceptions -- blackouts in 1942 during World War II and then again for the oil crisis in 1973.
