Christmas lights

I put up my single rope today. Took about 15 minutes. Might wait to turn them on, but quite a few in the neighborhood have been going all week. I wanted to do it while it was nice out

Our neighbor put his up and he leaves them on 24/7. The blue lgiht is horribly distracting.

I am mildly surprised my roommate hasn't complained yet.

I've seen a few houses in the neighborhood have put theirs up and have them on already. I was planning on lining the roof again this year, but the weather has been shitty and now we're supposed to get more snow tonight.

I was considering being lazy and getting one of the projectors to light up the garage and leave it at that.

And no pics?! Hardwired somehow I would imagine. Surprised that is legal, but maybe okay if parked

A few others in the neighborhood do it. Some are far worse than others

Agreed. There are the bad ones...and not as bad ones.

We decorated the inside of the house this weekend. Still haven't put anything on the house. Supposed to be nicer later this week. Hoping to get lights on the roof on Thanksgiving before family things.

We are hosting Thanksgiving now. We thought about doing our tree before this, but decided that's too much to get done this week.

We put ours up last weekend including the tree, etc. We were early but were excited to decorate a new home

There's quite a few in our neighborhood that have their homes decorated already

Lights might be less embarrassing than everything else

I saw some lights on already a week ago where some retirees live in town houses.

A lot of people were putting them up yesterday with it being 60 degrees.
