We replaced the 40W bulbs in the fence post lights with flicker bulbs and then put Santa hats on all the lights. Thank you dollar store for the cheap Santa Hats.
Maybe this should be a recurring theme with us? Pumpkins on Halloween, Santa Hats at Christmas...uh, Bunny Ears at Easter??? Uh, Leprechaun hats on St. Pats day???
Also, copying from Halloween we put a lighted garland all around the perimeter of the front yard...luckily the stuff was seriously on sale at Walgreen's..
Wouldn't be Christmas without the Menorah
Or the 'tree in the window' thing.
If you head up the steps to the porch you were greeted with this cheery site.
More fancy BBB garland going up the stairs.
Mrs. Madmadscientist did this really nice thing with the lights.
She wove greenery into the lights and put hung ornaments from them...looked exactly like something out of a fancy catalog like Grandin Road or Frontgate. You can see some of the other lights in the other shots but unfortunately this is the only closeup shot of one of the lights...
But wait, look a little bit closer at that Christmas village....something doesn't seem quite right there...
Nice overall shot of the Christmas room.
We also lit Hanukkah candles
The final stocking-mantle set-up.
Here's something that we shoulda known....
Cats Love Christmas!!!!
