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.

Our family has a automatic timer just soo if its snowing hard out, we won't have to go out and turn it on or off. If its snowing though, we have to keep the lights on because it just wouldn't be Christmas without them.

I love the look of Christmas lights on outside and the snow coming down, looks so festive, but has a certain comfort level to it, too.

Those lighted evergreen wreaths and garlands look so wonderful with some snow on them.

I manually turn them on and off daily (during the season) because It gives me a sense of giving my neighbours a since of Christmas cheer. Is that crazy or does someone else feel the same way?

When I get the Christmas lights and ladder out I think I give my neighbors a sense of fear

I wish we had an entires outside of a house to decorate. This is a 4-unit apartment complex...kind of a HUGE modular home with each of us having a front door of our own that takes us directly outside. We decorate our little side with lights and such and occasionally, the next door neighbor will put those hanging icicle lights up and always asks if we mind them extending to our side, to which we quickly accept! I put the lighted candles in the windows facing outside and we have a couple of lighted window pieces, but other than some lights strung around the outside door and around the hand rail and a couple of large lighted candles, that's about the limit to our opportunity to decorate, outside.

You get to decorate a lot more than some other apt buildings allow. Many don't allow anything.

silver bells is a new face around here!
We have the remote control kind but for some reason (that I can't remember) we used a time last year. Maybe we will try the remote again this year. We power the light through the basement garage so all you have to do it point the remote at the floor and push the button.
