December 5 - Outdoor Decorations Did people in your neighborhood decorate with lights? Did some people really go “all out” when decorating? Any stories involving your ancestors and decorations?
Our neighborhood never went all out on the decorations. A few trees and bushes lit up, some candle lights in the windows, bows on the porch and a Christmas tree in one window was about it. At my parents' house we would put up some icicle lights on the porch and bows on the railing and lamp post. We also had a Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer decoration that was supposed to go in the ground but ended up tied to the porch.
Although we never went all out on our own decorations, we always enjoyed driving around and seeing what other people had done. I remember one big display all over these people's yard that we went to for many years.
