aww, c'mon middie. it must be a guy thing, but there's no such thing as overkill with christmas lights.
my display grows every year (this year i'm trying to find one of those 8 foot inflatable homer clauses)
i put up 8 strings of white icicle lights on the house; 6 regular strings in white in the bushes; wrap a weeping cherry tree in red strings; there's a lit wireframe tree, and 2 lit wireframe reindeer, a sled, and santa; lit wireframe presents, and lighted plastic candy canes along the walk.
The way that you wander is the way that you choose. The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder where the fair wind blows.
