We like our Christmas lights at our house. We don’t do much and we downsized a little this year because I didn’t like extending my ladder to the max length to get the at the very top of the house. We compensated a little bit by putting lights down on the ground in front of Heather’s roses.
So Logan and I put the lights on the gutters. We had some old strings of the old school lights that we used. I know it is not very green for me to say so but the LED lights still have a strange cold glow that is not very Christmassy (that is a word here in Oklahoma, just so you know). I do like that you can stick a dozen or so strands together but I just don’t like the light they give off. So we went old school with the old c style bulbs this year. Hey they were in the original packages, I had to use them.
And Heather put up her dining room tree. It looks great on the inside and complements the lights outside through that big ole window.
So we put them up and shazzam! they work. You can see Heather in the doorway putting garland and lights around our front door.
The next day, no shazzam, the big lights don’t work! It looks like a couple strands have shorts so I go to do my favorite task. Redoing it! Heather helped so it went pretty fast. It had to because she had Zumba class at 5:30. I don’t dare put anything between her and her Zumba. I suggest you don’t either.
So as of last night they were still working. Lets keep our fingers crossed!!
If you “do” Christmas, do you have your lights up yet? Need any help? I’m busy, sorry.
