  • Not really. Some houses do some nice stuff, but most of them pretty much ignore it. There's one house that went all out, but somehow, they managed to make their stuff look really creepy. lol Santa looks all sneaky and like a pedophile or something, the way they did it. lol

  • Yes. Many people in my neighborhood decorate their houses very nicely. I am not one of them. I can't bear to spend the $$$ for the decorations and the electricity. Plus it was never part of either my or my husband's childhood traditions, so we have never put any thought into doing the outside of the house. Anyway, the kids and I will take a drive through the neighborhood a couple days before Christmas so that they can see the lights. That is a family tradition.

  • This neighborhood barely decorates. I think two have lights up ... haven't driven through to look. The neighborhood behind ours, on the other hand IS lit up and one guy has a snow maker. Seriously.

  • Nope. Just the moron across the street that decorates his yard in those giant blow up decorations that usually end up blowing into the street in high winds,lol

  • Around here about 75% of the neighbors decorate. We have Icicle lights on th house, animated reindeer with lights, a tree on either side of our front door with lights & a door wreath.
