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

Posted by   + Show Post

 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?

I think gawking is the point to them being put up

We didn't have any Christmas lights but it wouldn't bother me.

I didn't have any.  I did have other Christmas decorations outside.  I feel if people do have a problem letting others look at them then...why even put them up?

Quoting nodramamama311:

If we go through all the trouble and time putting up lights and decorations on our house, people better look at them...lol

Isn't this the truth..... Lol

You decorate the inside of your house for you. You decorate the outside of your house for others!
