My Merry Christmas Announcement

Christmas Decorations Christmas is a hands-on art. From the lights we put on the house to the decorations we put on the tree to the great foods we eat in the process, Christmas is a time of doing -- and this is the place we gather to talk, plan and share.

a gadget that you can plug something into it like a lamp, clap your hands and it would turn on, clap twice and it would turn off

I saw an interesting new product at Target. It had three outlets and had different settings for sequences to activate the outlets. It came with a little snowman remote with settings like steady on, snow, and such. I'm not really sure how it would look considering it would only be able to operate whole strands at a time rather than individual bulbs like a normal chaser set, but I was tempted to try it just to play with it and see. It was on sale this week for like $15.

I have to go to the 4 windows for the front of the house to plugs those in manually then I have to go outside and plug those in. We have a remote around here somewhere for a control box. But the way things seems to disappear around here I probably will not find that remote until March of next year, ahh well.

BF bought a timer this year to use. It is set to come on at dusk and we set it to stay on for 6 hours. It has different time settings and so far has worked out really good. Its is light sensitive and raintight so it is pretty accurate as to when it comes on and goes off.

WE manually turn everything on but it is no fun going around and plugging tem all in and unplugging them again. I have thought about buying timers for all the lights that would make it that much easier. That way we can keep them on when we visit my family too. Not many people decorate their apartments here so I take lots of pride in mine when we do.
