    Amazing displays, just incredible. My favorite is “Christmas lights on Miami House”, but they all deserve some credit for their work. But….$4000 for electric bill…uuuh, that’s a lot of money.

    Im sorry for breaking the christmas spirit if this is what you had in mind!
    Over the years people have gone over the top with christmas ornaments and lights like they were competing to be on a reality tv show
    Well this is not TV and were forgeting about what christmas was like when we were children, There comes a time in everyones life when we feel the need to celebrate a holiday for all of us to see that we are in the spirit.
    This year in my house along with countless others that can relate to my personal experiences when it comes to christmass , we deal with the familys getting dibbs on who,s going to host the celebration with family , well if you did,nt pick a number first chances are that it would be held at a relatives house , With that being said im shure unless your children are small to begin with you won,t bother getting a tree !
    So now since were all adult,s here and are children are grown we are going to keep our decorations to the minumum.
    Well thats all fine as long as the celebrations not at your home ….but what about the outside? What will you neihbors thin …That cheap bastard is,nt putting out any lights!..ok like most misguided lawn warts they tend to run out to the nearest walmart and pickup icicle lights , fiber optic lights, blinking lights and a whole lot of inflatable crap to make there property look like a hooker version of micheal jacksons neverland thinking that there house is the best …or the brightest…or the crapiest! Well i can tell you first hand that if your one of theese people that i have just described here in the material list , Then you definitly need to take a lesson in outdoor gear!
    Im not here to badmouth anyone for getting into the spirit but to help you get yourself organized with your decorations.
    First of all the blwup crap that is half blown up and spinging air leaks on your lawn look like CRAP, and if it is fully inflated it still looks like crap . Thats why China has become the richest country on the continent ..Because you look to the foriegners to give you an easy cheap way out to decorate, well i hate to burst your bubble but that crap was out a year ago and if you want to be white trash then by all means head down to walmart to get your santa on a harley davidson with some foam pebbles bowing around as the biker biker makes enless revolutions!
    Heres the deal , walmart is not my enemy but my friend! You can find unbelievable deals on ornaments as long as you put the time and effort into the holiday that you supposedly really really really care for,
    So lets do this this Christmas right , First count all your bushes that you want to have lights on
    2nd ..deide what 1 or 2 color scheme you want to go with .
    3rd Don,t have an immediate plan but a basic plan that you can start out with and tweak alon the way .
    EXAMPLE: the bushes that were against my house i lit up white
    The bushes that were low lying in front of them i lit up white and red.
    The 2 planters that were to either side of the colums that outside my front door i lit up red only!
    The colums i put a spiral scotch pine ropping and on top of that i added white ligts to follow the spiral.
    On the collums i added 2 red velour bows about halfway and that finished off the front .
    So far i had 9 white light sets about 2 dollars
    the ropping is fake and cost about 8 dollars
    I added 7 red light sets at 1.67 each at walmart
    and i added 1 white set a 1.67…so for about 40 bucks i made my place look like a million buck , it,s classy and beautiful , But you can always put your blow up dolls on your front lawns for 6 times what i payed and never be able to come close to what a traditional house like mine looks like !…THE choice is yours! blowup crap and multi-colored lights or plan it out and not overdo it and make it look like a million bucks! Im serious don,t waste your money on chineese inflatable instead since the chineese are going to get you money anyways spend less …because the saying holds true LESS IS MORE! Have a Merry Christmas and a happy holiday in whatever you chose …if you like it ,that.s all that matters, My experience as an architechural lightin designer has allowed me to become concious of my proffesion. Christmas has always been a Holiday of expressing yourself and your home and I want people to recognize that each and everyone of us has the ability to make each of our homes a showplace that we can be proud of , the blowup crap really has no place unless you own a theme park!
    Your house is,nt Disney world , it,s not great adventure and if you have children there not staring at that crap 24 hours a day ! so make your home festive , and think of it as winter ladscaping, your not planting bushes and tree,s without a plan so why do it with lawn ornaments ?
    Is your house going to win a town competition for the most junk? NO …
    Your house can win a competition for the most tastefully done! Please take my advise and stop making the chineese rich fro, blowuo ornaments ,,,you will sleep much better and your house will be a showplace instead of a SLUM! thanks for reading and hope i was able to help the lost causes of christmas decorators hahahahahah! humbug!

  15. glenn Says:

    The monkhous house is tastefully done , all the others are a MESS and look like CRAP , if your house looks like one of the above them i feel sorry….very sorry for you!

For those of us in the northern hemisphere it’s the darkest time of year, the winter solstice occurring on the 21st of December and bringing only a few hours of daylight to much of the northern parts of the world. With so much darkness in our daily lives, and in celebration of the earth beginning it’s return to longer days, the custom of the Christmas lights is one of the longest held and most cherished traditions of the season.
