    Sounds like alot of work.


    I try to limit the lights to the three 30 foot strings I run up the flagpole........ but "she" usually has other ideas as well.

    My wife puts the Griswalds to shame.

    I have to start working more OT to pay for the upcoming light bills over the next couple of months.

    We dont put up lights outside. However we do decorate the inside of the house.

    I don't mind decorating the inside of the house, but the outside is a pain. This year I will do minimal lights or be grinch-like.

    I decorate quite a bit inside, a few decorations outside, but seldom put lights up.


    You Griswold-like people should post pics or video of your workmanship.

    I get to do all the decorating I want at the store. Most years we're not even here for the day, we're visiting Hubby's family. This year we're going to be home, so

    Since I'm generally working the holidays (not a sympathy solicitation, I usually volunteer for it ), I don't really have much purpose for holiday decorations at the house. Funny though, I actually have a ton of decorations since I used to go all out with decorating.

    This year, I'm leaving for Italy the day after Christmas & don't come back until January 6 and go right back to work the next day. No time to put decorations away!!
    The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.

    I don't really celebrate Christmas, so I don't put up decorations. Also I live in a top-floor apartment, so not many people would see any decorations I put on my door or window anyway. And there would always be the risk of offending someone.

    I do like seeing other people's decorations as I walk on the street, though.
