“Some people decorate with lights, some people decorate with greens” I remember saying that a million times when my kids were small. We would tour the neighborhood lights only to go by our own house, with the porch light on, shining down on swags of berries and ropes of greens hung from the front porch columns. The children always thought our house was boring without the outside lights but it is just the way I was brought up.
I love driving by one of those houses so bedazzled with lights and blow up Santas that you have to slow down the car to take it all in. My heart leaps up when I can see the far away glow of someone’s electric wonderland in the distance. Is your house like that?
The only way I can express it is to say I love to see it but it isn’t the way I decorate the outside of our house for Christmas.
What are your traditions? Are you someone who decorates a tree for the birds? Is your electric output sky high from all of your neighborhood bling? Do you live next door to someone who decorates in the extreme or someone who completely ignores the whole thing? Just wondering.
