Well when the kids were home we were. Now that they have their own families it just seems like too much work.

How about you?

I'm not.

Only decorations in my house are a tree with lights.

The wife loves to decorate the entire inside of our house. It's like the attack of the snowmen in our living room. She also decorates around our deck out back. I like to decorate our 15 foot Blue Spruce in the front yard.

Nope. We did lights on the deck one year. Then a wreath on the door and garland up the porch rail the next year. Now we don't even have a tree up. We have no kids and not much company over so I guess we have become scrooges.

Efficiency.

I put a string of lights where the front door is.

Dec 7 ...... 10 minutes to put up

+1 on keeping the wife happy. When we first moved into our neighborhood back in '98, EVERYBODY put up house lights and was highly "suggested" that we do the same. I mean, they were literally tour buses that would drive around our neighborhood as we were close to the festival of lights in that town. Now, fast forward to today, I'd say less than half are doing it. One reason, most of the homeowners have gotten older and kids are gone, so what's the point. No more tour buses in the last couple of years.

Nope. I don't have any time to put up decorations, and they waste electricity. I don't have much "holiday spirit" either. We just have a fake tree in the living room and that's about it.

Iíve got a lot of cactus in my front yard, so I decorate 2 of them every year. Wrap lights on them and light up candy canes. The neighbors probably think Iím nuts, so thatís part of the reason I do it.

No. Don't want to and don't have the space to store the stuff if I wanted too.

I would like to be able to light things up more than I do, but the time required eludes me. I currently light up the porch pretty good and I always have a huge (real) tree in the house with lots of lights on it.

I travel all over the U.S. (mostly drive at night) and always enjoy the Christmas lights that I see, regardless of the amount on display. As someone who has always lived in a northern climate, I especially enjoy the lights when everything is covered with snow. It makes the lights even prettier.

Thanks to all of you who do put up the lights/decorations, no matter how "big" you get into it. smile
