I want you all to know how impressed I am by your tasteful Christmas light displays. They really are lovely. I also want you to know that last year, after seeing them all in their glory, I bought piles of outdoor lights at the after holiday sales with every intention of joining the crowd this year. I even bought the little clips Then, the weekend after thanksgiving was insane and I just didn't get to it. The week after that was really crazy too and this week, well this week it's 9 degrees outside. Plus, I will absolutely have to take them down on New Years' Day so they'd only be up for like three weeks. And that seems like a whole lot of work for three weeks. Yesterday I carried the bin of lights back to the basement, all still tidily in their boxes. Sorry. I had the best of intentions, I swear. Next year, for sure. Promise.
Obviously, this is not one of my neighbors tasteful displays but worth a look nonetheless. Wow.
