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.

holly THAT person

Almost every neighborhood has one,
It's the personin their neighbourhood who goes ALL OUT at christmas, like with inflatables, oversize decor, life-sized figures al;l sprawled out over their house, it's usually brilliant to watch, people walk up the street just to see it, it's the highlight of your drive home from work, is anybody here THAT person? You might not even realize it's you, if you are could you post a picture of your display

Not yet - I'm still working on classy and tasteful; my other half keeps coming home with different things he's found to add to his collection. If his collection ever gets put out before mine then yes, we will be THAT person!!!!!!!!

We have someone similar to that..meaning she has so much that you can't tell what anything is! It's just all lights..and in the day time....it's hideous!

I will never be THAT person, now if she tamed things down and had a theme or something, it'd help.

I'm not this person either. Although every year I do buy a little more for the outside. I don't plan on any huge inflatables thou...I like simpler things such as lights around my house, light up candy canes etc...

Sadly I may be becoming that person I have always been addicted to Christmas and i don't think it will ever change.

This year was the frist year in my own house with my wife so i started pretty strong I think so we will see if i wind up being that person!!1

My husband and I don't go crazy with outdoor decorations, but we decorate a lot inside- besides the christmas tree, we have a manger, christmas village, Mr and Mrs Santa Claus, along with snowglobes, and other holiday decorations scattered throughtout the house. Our neighbor across the street is another story. THere are lights everywhere, along with every new inflatable item sold in stores. They also display other decorations outside their home. The funniest part is, they don't talk to any of the neighbors! They come across as this christmas loving family, who love to pass along the holiday spirit, but thats not the case.

I am like novelist. I don't decorate the outside very much(lights and a few statues) but fully decorate the inside. You might think that you were in Santa's village. When I get all decorated, I'll try to figure out how to post some pictures.
