Every year here there is a big hoopla in the local paper about how folks from the other side of the Mason-Dixon line have moved in and are filling "our" neighborhoods with "their" style of Christmas lights. I personally think it's bunk - just something else to get upset about, and to divide us. I thought we'd have a little unscientific study here to see if there's even any truth to the rumors.
1. Are you from the north or south?
2. Do you put up white lights or colorful lights for Christmas?
...let's examine the results and see if there really is a regional difference!
(And let me be clear - even if there is a difference, I don't think anyone should be complaining about it! It's Christmas for Pete's sake, let's just relax and enjoy the lights!) :o)

I'm a southern at heart (we live in Oklahoma) and I love my tree with all white lights, but I prefer colorful outdoor lights. One of our favorite things is to go out looking at Christmas lights and to me it's really boring to see a house in all one color, but if that's the look you want I do think white looks better than any other single color. We have plain white lights around the inside of our front window so that it frames our white light tree, but the big outdoor lights are multicolored with white icicle lights hanging down. To me it gives the house a gingerbread effect and I love it.
