    I'll start off by saying that we don't. Did about 40 years ago but stopped and haven't restarted--unless you count the Santa we hang just inside the front storm door. We do put up our tree in the window in the livingroom but that faces away from any road.

    Very little. We have lights around the garage and a trio of light up chickens in the yard.

    I bet I have the same trio of illuminated chickens!

    I also wound a "forever" garland with battery powered lights around a lamp post, and hung a similar wreath-ish thing on the front security screen.

    That's it.

    No, I live in the country and the house is not visible from the road.

    I do need to find the wreaths we put on the gates though. That's the extent of our exterior Christmas decorating.

    The outside we have a small string of lights, because we thought it would be longer then it was [​IMG] but the inside is done up real nicely. We will be getting a tree this Wednesday and probably decorate it when the grandkids come up (my neice and nephew).

    My truck radio however, is set at 93.1 which is the local ALL THE TIME CHRISTMAS music station, along with 96.1 for those of you in Sacramento area haha. I love Christmas music, loooove it. If I had good music and good food I would be totally happy lol!

    I usually do. About 50-60 strings of lights. The house, windows, trees, bushes even the ground. The one year I did not the neighbors came by to see if I was OK. Thinking I'm gonna cut back though. Way too expensive to run them now. Planning on buying a few nets and calling it good.

    This year - nope. Too stinkin' cold!

    I'd love to, but no.

    I put the single light in the windows..have a lighted wreath on the front door, and did our gate at the end of the drive.
