Why our house looks like this for Christmas
We were fortunate enough to travel for Thanksgiving, but unfortunately didn't have much time to decorate for the holidays. After the neighbors poked fun numerous time (in person and harassing via email) Ryan had enough. He promptly went downstairs and flung two wads of Christmas lights in our puny tree out front.
Half of them twinkle, half of them don't.
And we leave them on 24/7 so our neighbors can see them whenever they look out their windows, day or night.
I've had other friends try to guess what the display is, if it is supposed to be snowflakes or stars hanging in the tree. "Nah, it's just a wad of lights" I tell them.
Eat your heart out, Clark Griswold.
