We did not hang many lights at all this year, but the lit wreath is still up on the fence and the ornaments are still hanging in the woods. We never have a " date " to take them down, just whenever is convenient. This morning Mr's M and I took the ornaments off the tree inside, and rather unceremoniously lopped all the branches off and carted them in a sheet down to the firepit. This makes taking the tall stick-like remnant of a tree out of the house so much easier... I was able to carry the 9 footer out by myself :-)

You might be a Red-Neck if your Christmas lights are also your 4th of July decorations!

 

That's exactly why my wife won't let me decorate for Christmas outside anymore. She knows it will be June, July or August until I take them down, and she said it is quite embarrassing. Now I'm not allowed to do it anymore. Got out of that project in just one year!

Christmas lights are always up on the house--- they fit under the deck eave so haven't faded in 23 years-- we just don't turn them on after Jan. 15 or so. But, we start lighting them for Saternalia by Dec. 17, and they pretty well stay on 'til after Ukranian Christmas. Olde Deeres know how to party!!!

Our inside lights & tree are down. I'm planning on taking the lights off my semi & moving it back up by the shop tomorrow.
