Not I. I can't afford it and the wind blows everything over.

I live in a condo, so the best I can do is put something on my front door. My parents have one of those blow up things in their yard. I think it's Winnie the Pooh, but I can't remember. They used to decorate a lot more, but as they've gotten older the decorations have gotten fewer and fewer:sad elf:.

We put up a good amount of outside decor.This will be our fourth Christmas in this house.Since I showed up with my Christmas mania it has infected a neighbor or two each year.I would love to see the whole street lit up if the infection continues to spread.

for some reason, my parents never decorated outside. I suppose because my mom did 99% of the decorating, and she wasn't going to do the outside. And I guess since I didn't grow up with it, I've never considered it, even though I like to see other houses decorated. Now, we live in an apartment, so there isn't really place for it anyway.

Papa Christmas, your outside lights are awesome!

Papa your display is wonderful I love it when people colour match outdoor lights!!!! Fantastic, be sure to share with photos of your display this year too! :D


As for the topic --- my now father-in-law OVER-decorated every year, when I was in high-school. Definitely known as "the house with all the lights" on his street. He moved this year, and now has Hedges! I'll definitely share photos once all his lights are up!

Papa Christmas, I love it! Our enthusiastic neighbors directly across the street had beautiful displays, but they moved away. The new owners don't do anything outdoors. :sad elf: If only they would just put some candles in their windows.

That is beautiful! I love how colorful your display is! We do the outside of our house; and are trying to schedule the lights now. I'll post pics when we get them done.

Yes I decorate outside, and put lights in the trees and a few things out. I am thinking this year to put lights around the windows and the pole on my porch.

Beautiful Papa Christmas.

I don't usually do much outside any more. I put a wreath on the front doors with lights and garland around the door and some lights in the shrubs. We use to do the whole yard with lights in trees, down the driveway, etc. We were the only ones that did it years ago and then every one started doing it. It seemed last year almost no body put outdoor stuff out.

I am decorating my yard CandyLand themed this year but am having trouble coming up with ideas that can sustain the weather here in Canada!

We do the same thing here, my neighbors are really getting into it also.
