    I don't own any.. A couple of weeks ago I wondered if this would be the year I bought some for myself, but doesn't look like it will be. :lol: I do have a nice lantern on the balcony and when I remember, I put a candle out there.

  • video doesnt do this much justice, but this house a few miles away from me does this every year. You tune to a certain FM station to get the synced music. Really cool

    At Speedy's house:

    http://youtu.be/4YDE2hurs0Q

    I …. I love the colored lights every year
    And the way the neighbors stop their cars and stare
    I strap a Santa Claus on my roof
    Plastic candy canes and reindeer everywhere

    I’m stringing up decorations
    It’s draining the power stations
    Fake icicle’ll light four nations
    Imported from third world nations

    I’m stringing up decorations
    I’m freaking out fire stations
    I’m pumping out radiation
    My neighbors are out of patience

    (“Hey, pal, come on knock it off…It’s three in the morning!”)

    Got to keep those yuletide decorations up all winter
    God appreciates my plugged-in tribute to The Savior
    God would love it if I could keep ‘em up till well past Easter

    Amen

    Good, good, good decorations
    I’m putting up a manger station
    Three wise men’s destination
    Nutcrackers in full claymation
    Little Drummer Boy animation

    Fa-la-la-la-ho ho ho
    Fa-la-la-la-ho ho ho
    Fa-la-la-la-ho ho ho
    Fa-la-la-la-ho ho ho

    Good good decorations
    I’m stringing up decorations
    It’s draining the power stations
    Fake icicle’ll light formations
    From third world nations
    "The stars are all connected to the brain."

    Lots of cussing.
    Better to pick new ones up after the holiday. Usually 50-75% off.

    No - people know not to bother with that.

    Hope you're ok after your fall.

    that's about what I went through today.....in the rain.

    but now I have 800 lights in the bushes on a remote control!!! I can push a button from almost anywhere and turn them on and off!!!!!!

    anytime you go to get lights get at least 2 or 3 times as many as you need - you always need more!!!!!!!

    I have been to Target three days in a row!

  • If anyone is in the Orlando area, you should check out this house. Here's the website for it. I saw it last night and it is amazing how many trees they have outside and inside the house. The owner has to run two generators on top of his house electric because he melted the electrical wires to his house twice this year. :shock:

    It is so beautiful

    There's a house close to me that sets their Christmas lights to a song every year, you turn on the radio in your car and watch it. Not the best vid, but here it is:
