    The first is not a sentence. The others are. #2 and 3 are overly poetic for me.

    Re: feast our eyes

    4 is grammatical but I can't understand the logic of only going riding at Christmas to enjoy the view. What's wrong with the view the rest of the year?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: feast our eyes

    Two friends of mine are principals in the band Trans-Siberian Orchestra. One of their songs, Wizards in Winter, has been used many times to "choreograph" the lighting of Christmas home decorations. One of them is in this video. A sight worth seeing.
