One of the things I enjoyed most, living in the city many years ago, was catching a glimpse of interiors through the many lit windows when walking or driving around at night, especially at Christmas time. To me, it was often like a living museum. Just a glimpses of lives here and there. There's something essentially soothing about a lit city window at the holidays.
