Christmas 2011 Advent Calendar - Day 4

For your viewing pleasure - A photo of our outside Christmas lights from a year or two ago.  We were lucky enough to get snow for one day in December, which made for some perfect pictures.  We were also lucky in that the snow didn't get deep or stick around for very long and thus didn't make life difficult!  As far as I'm concerned, that's the perfect Christmas snow.

We didn't do as many lights this year, (I'll try to get a photo of this year's lights in a few days), but we are just about the only house on our street that does any at all, although I have noticed that the new people at the end of the street have put up outside lights!  Hooray for new people!!

Do you decorate the outside of your home for Christmas?  Lots of lights, or just across the eaves of the house?  What's your preference?


  1. Ooh, pretty! No lights for us. No outside outlets and my husband isn't willing to run an extension cord into the garage.

  2. Hi Christine! We always do a few, some years more than others, but it's an old house and extension cords are always involved. One year we had so many that we couldn't run the microwave while the lights were on or we'd blow a fuse! After that we scaled back a bit!! ;o)

  3. We only have a small set of out door decorations currently, again the problem of moving from an apartment to a house, you have no outside lights! But we have a cute little prelit tree with light up gifts under it and then light up penguins along the walkway.

  4. ZOMG!! Christmas PENGUINS?!?!?!

    I think I just overloaded on awesome!
