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?
As I recall, our house had a nice tree in the front yard and we always strung lights on it. Later we added lights along the gutter and across the garage. Somehow I got assigned the job of untangling the lights on many occasions. Although we had wreaths and red bows and some lights to decorate the outside, inside is where we really tried to decorate the most. I think most of our neighbors did the same thing.
