That's very cool. I know the feeling. My MIL just moved and gave us a bunch out outisde decorations. We are in the process of testing the lights and getting them ready to use.
I am hoping to my fall decorations up this weeked.
I like the idea of a decoration countdown but I do not think that would work to good for me. We do most of our decorating thanksgiving weekend however my daughter can not wait that long and will start asking to put up het Christmas Tree right after halloween. We always cave in and let her it up early.
