Christmas Light Fails

A long time ago, in a blog far, far away. Oh wait, no, it was this blog, back in the age when I didn't post pictures. I ranted about the things you don't do with your Christmas light display. This time, I give you pictures. Suzanne's first pet peeve of Christmas lights: people who just slap them on the bushes.

People, if you're going to break out the lights, please take the time to make them look like they're magically twinkling randomly from within the bushes. Don't just snake them through like your 5 year old was given the task.

Pet peeve number 2: Don't just dump the whole strand on the top of the bush because your other half wants the outside decorated. This looks just as sloppy as the first group of pictures.

If you have a lot of bushes and a big yard, and not enough lights, maybe doing one column in front of your house and the adjacent bush isn't a good idea. Perhaps just use that one strand of lights to frame the door?

On the other end of the spectrum, if you've got lights left over, you can skip bunching them up on a column so that you have all the lights out. Less would be fine.

And the final pet peeve: check your lights before you string them up!

What say you?
