string them up

Do you decorate the outside of your house?

We only put lights on the trees in front of the house
and on the front of the house.  They are turning
on tonight.  In the neighbourhood where we
live they have a "light up" night, they
make a big deal, have a tent, have horse
sleigh rides, and everyone turns on
the Christmas lights.  At the front of
the entrance to where we live, they have
a fountain and some big tall trees,
and they are lighted up.  Tonight
we turn on the lights?


  1. Your neighborhood must be beautiful with all the lights. We have several houses that really go all out with their lights. We're not into it so much. We have a huge lighted wreath that hangs above the garage door and that's about it.

    There's a cul-de-sac not too far from here that is amazing with the Christmas lights. There's always a line of cars waiting to drive around it all.

    I love this piece! very festive. We decorated the outside of our house yesterday. I even put up icicle lights on our deck in the back yard!! it looks fantastic! I love the magic that everyone creates at this time of year. Enjoy your neighborhood, it sounds fantastic!

  3. What a great idea have a light night with festivities! We were the first to get our lights up and on in the neighborhood! We've been waiting patiently for our neighbors to join in. The older folk seem less excited and more last minute. While many of the younger families have them up this weekend!

    When my daughter was little we had so many lights on the house and garden the breaker went out!! They were all pink lights too...that neighborhood everyone would compete for best lights...keeping up with the Jones style!! I love to drive around looking at lights and appreciate the work that goes into making those fancy displays!!

    Maybe you could take a photo for your blog!!

  4. sounds so festive! nothing like that at all round here!

  5. love your drawing today. I finished hanging the lights outside and we're fully ablaze tonight!

  6. Living inside an apartment complex makes it hard to get many lights up outside, some people just put lights on their trees to be seen from their windows. last night I was out in the neighborhood after dark and saw many homes all lit up and so very pretty to look at them.

  7. Oh Leeeeeee this one is awesome!!!!! I LOVE it!!! SO colorful!
    Concerning decorating outside, a 'no' this year - no extra motivation left....just inside should do it. I have on two windows little lights, which you are seeing outside, if you consider that outside decortions, lol :)
    Have a great day, smiles, Anke :)
