I love driving around at night during this time of year and looking at the wide variety of Christmas decorations. It seems to be much more the norm no to string loads of lights from your house, and to generally festoon every surface with swags, greenery, lights, inflatable things, moving reindeer (and even one I saw with disco antlers) and more. There are a few things that I can’t abide regarding Christmas lights – anything flashing or chasing, solid blue lights, anything that moves, drips or inflates. I don’t mind a light that twinkles, and I generally prefer white lights. I am also not a fan of the new LED lights, as I think their light is very cold. I am pretty much hating everything that this normally lovely house has on its lawn. People were stopped in their cars, gawping at this display.Ahhh, this is much better. Elegant, tasteful and fairly simple. Great wreath with red berries and two urns with branches, greens and magnolia leaves.
Here are some other houses that I liked.
This was one of the more unusual lighting displays. The chimney is a very rough stone, and they’re shining two red and two green lights straight up, so it creates sort of a ripple or waterfall effect. I really had to look for a minute to figure this out.
Which is your favourite?
