This morning we found a note on our driveway. Someone had written, "no christmas lights in June-bad for the neighborhood!!!!!!!"
Now, we have a 300 foot driveway to our house which sits behind the house in front, on a wooded lot. It cannot be seen easily from the street at all (we never get any trick or treaters, and the pizza guys can never find us.) Two years ago after seeing garden lights on houses in the city, in California, and at restaurants everywhere, we decided to solve our lighting problem by putting up white garden lights on our house and trees up by our house. It looks so pretty, and lights it up nicely. At Christmas we put up colored lights and turn off the white ones, and after christmas we took down the colored ones and turned the white ones back on.
I love my pretty white garden lights and I am annoyed at the cowardice of someone leaving an anonymous note. I dont understand who would do it, the only three houses who can see our yard all deny having done it.
Here is my question:IS it somehow bad for the neighborhood if people think my house has white christmas lights in front, and should I care? I cant afford to install landscape lighting. I thought it was trendy.
