My first Christmas lights of the season

Went out to bring my nephew home from work and saw a house with Christmas lights on. (HolyNight7 - if you go make a left onto Midway by CVS and keep going for a little bit, you can't miss it. Go check it out!)

I saw a house in our town last Tuesday or Wednesday with their lights up and on. These people always do a HUGE display each year in their yard but I guess it was a practice run because I havent seen them on again since.

sheepsnot is a new face around here!
Just saw my first fully decorated house yesterday. The trees and bushes were done up nicely. While I do like Christmas lights a lot, I wonder if Thanksgiving is getting a 2nd tier status. Halloween is becoming the jumping off place for Christmas and Thanksgiving is being skipped over. I know it's not being ignored as a holiday altogether, because we all celebrate it, but I bet it has lost a bit of its lustre.

Actually...come to think of it. On saturday I saw another house with C9 lights around the roof.

My husband wants to wait until any other person in our neighborhood turns their lights on before we turn ours on. Yesterday when we were putting up the lights a neighbor 2 doors down came over to talk to us and said we should just turn them on whenever we want!

I was pretty much like...OH YEAH!

I really like the new clear multi-colored C9s that they have out.

I don't like the old sorta opaque ones.

I really wanted to do C9s this year, but there is no way I could swing it with the number of lights I plan on using.
