    Very nice.

    I love Christmas decorations and lights and go out of my way to walk or drive around to see them. I happen to know for a fact that many JWs like them too but they are secretive and don't want the control freaks to know about it. December is a gloomy month and the colorful lights give a beautiful lift to the evenings. What is there not to like?

    The religion is positively hateful with its "bah, humbug" attitude about the holidays in general and I can never forgive them for trying to take the "L" out of life and separate people from their relatives. Now that I am out of there, I make it a point to revel in Christmas and all its lights, sounds and smells, probably more so than before I made the mistake of joining the JW religion.

    Very nice. Has he started planning his Valentines Day lighting plans? Or has he started rewiring the house with programmed external outlets?

    Love it!

    The first year I did holiday lights, we went all out, every breaker in the house was running at max capacity. It was fun, but I failed to realize at the time that all these decorations require storage space during the off season.

    Wonderful lights. Definitely, ahead of anything our 60 neighbors have.

    I just adjust the holly

    I will pass along all the good suggestions to my husband for next year ,especially the LED $ saving ideas ! He counted so far 7,000 lights ,but that really is not too much ,so he says . Another yard in town has 14,000 lights !

    We have had a terrible time with squirrels chewing throught he wires .Thankfully my husband knows how to rewire and repair them . My favorite thing is collecting the blow mold figures ,we visited a house a few miles away from here that has 600 !!!!! It was crazy ...I am going back to take pictures this weekend .

    I love the Sanata on the roof falling on the ice ...maybe next year .
