I put my lights up on my house the weekend before Thanksgiving. This year we had more rain than normal during November, so it took longer than I had anticipated...

I do C9 strands. I bought white and red, and then spent an hour or so alternating the lights. They really do look awesome, and are different than most I see.

I wish someone in my area would teach a class on doing computerized lights. I think it would be awesome to have the music and light show set-up in my area. My neighbors might disagree, though!

My lights are up year round, and used all year. When I am sitting out in the summer it is a subtle glow. But this year I didn't put up any outside decorations, planning for next year. I need more outdoor decorations to do the computerized thing... I have the box to do it. Well, there is the electrical i have to work on.

I try and start on all the outdoor stuff by say the second weekend of November. But I have two small shopping centers to do, a professional building, as well as my home stuff so weather is a huge factor for me to deal with. Spendt many cold dark nights trying to get things all done. This year was the worse since work issues figured in bad.
