how do you feel about people driving by to see your christmas lights?

 last night we decided to take a drive to see christmas lights put up in neighborhoods in the surrounding towns.

my husband offered to drive but wouldn't slow down for very long, especially in this very rich part of town, but most of the homes were decorated so beautifully. we wanted to enjoy looking at them.

my husbsand kept saying that he didn't want to drive slow because he wasn't sure how the homeowners would react to people who didn't live their gauking at their lights.

i say that that's the whole point of putting them up and if they didn't like people driving by to look then they shouldn't do it. he says some do it for their own personal enjoyment. i thinks the lights are calming and bring joy to a person. if i could i'd have them up all year in my own home, but if they are outside shouldn't everybody enjoy them and wouldn't it make you proud that others want to admire and enjoy them too?

do you put lights up outside and does it bother you that people drive by to see them?

 We put them up FOR people to look at :) I'd think nothing of someone slowing down outside my home to check them out.

here theres horse back rides and hay rides through neighborhoods just to look at lights! Id say slowing down wouldnt hurt anyone, it would be a complement. :)

We haven't put any lights up outside, but I agree with you. If you put up lights, especially if you deliberately do an elaborate design, you should expect people to gawk!
