  • Eh, depends on how it's done. I prefer the more "traditional" looking light displays as opposed to the tacky and haphazard ones.

  • Only if they are well thought-out; like everything is placed/outlined nicely on trees/shrubs/windows, etc. If they're thrown on just to pile it on, then I'll pass.

  • If they look nice. If they're ones that are just randomly put together then not really. There's one neighborhood in town where the entire neighborhood decorates their houses and every night everyone goes there to see the lights. It's beautiful and DS loves seeing the lights. He's asked us to go see them every night since. lolz. I would love to be able to decorate but living in an apartment doesn't really make it possible to decorate like that. haha

  • Only if they are done properly not tacky, i live in the south and some people down here put a whole new meaning on the work redneck christmas. People like the Holdman Christmas i think is beautiful, if you don't know what i'm talkin about check out www.holdman.com/christmas and look at his christmas lights sequence. It's impressive.

  • yes but it needs to flow...some people put wierd stuff together. We just do a string of lights. I would not mind doing more but its costly!
