  • Yes. My hubby put them up BEFORE Thanksgiving. But I put my foot down and wouldn't let him light them until at least Thanksgiving night! Now, getting him to take them down is another story!!

  • My DH used to put Christmas lights on the house until he became afraid of heights. He hasn't fallen or anything...he's just getting old and afraid he MAY fall. Either that or he's just being lazy..idk...LOL
    I love lights on a country house. It could be pitch black on the road and you see a lighted house off in the distance....ahh...pretty!

  • Mine hates it. He gripes the whole time. I don't know why he does it.

    I don't look forward to it every year because of his griping.

  • i had to work the day after thanksgiving because i decided to get a job for theholidays and we said that WE would put up decorations either on thanksgiving or on sunday when i did nt have to work. you know i got home friday night and all the outside lights were up. i was a little mad first, but then i got to thinking about it and usually i just stand around freezing my behind off so it was okay he did the outside as long as WE did the inside.
