So tonight we went out, like we do every year, to look at christmas decorations. Maybe it’s just me but it sure seems like when I was a kid so many more people decorated for Christmas then they do now. Now I will say there were some impressive houses, we even saw one house that had put on the roof in lights “Ho Ho Ho” with a plastic santa on the corner of the roof, but overall the night was a let down. There were just not that many yards and houses decorated as there have been years past, especially as a child.
I’m sorry but putting lights around your doorway and thats it is not decorating. You might as well have not even wasted your time. Damn it people want to see fake reindeer pulling a sleigh and a fat guy in a red suit in the yard. Lights around the trees and around the roof of the house and up and down your driveway. The nativity scene and the grinch steeling everyone’s presents. Charlie Brown with his tree with one ornament and snoopy by his side.
We don’t want to see a bunch of deflated blowup snowmen, A blowup snowglobe so fogged up you can’t even make out what is inside it. We don’t want to see a tree with one string of lights that look like squirrels stole half the bulbs and hid them with their nuts. Don’t take the easy way out either and buy 20 inflatable decorations and throw them out in your yard either. Buy some actual decorations and put them out the right way damn it. Kids look forward to seeing these and thanks to you, their whole Christmas experience has just been ruined for life. FOR LIFE I SAY!
This is an example of decorating your yard, in case you need some pointers.
