It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, well something like that anyway. I love this time of year, i love the smell, I love the giving, I love the jolliness and I love decorating. Decorating is my forte, especially exterior illumination, I would like to consider myself to be an expert. How does one become an expert? You simply must posses the knowledge to use a ladder, run an extension cord, and finally you must know when enough is enough with the lighting of your home!
I should mention that winding up the cord is a good skill to have as well as the know how when it comes to the de-construction of the Christmas assembly. You may even say that one’s ability to move around on a roof would be a must-have skill as well. I suppose there is more to this than you might think, nonetheless you should be prepared for the goal at hand.
What goal? You ask. The goal of flipping a switch and spreading holiday cheer! It’s a great responsibility, there are few who can handle this with poise and class. How am I able to do it you ask? Well, I wanna know why you keep asking me all these questions?
So let’s make a list and we will check it twice! Of the things you need to complete such a massive under taking.
-Christmas lights, preferably working ones
-A big plastic santa and reindeer
-A timer for your lights
Remember, you want to pick either color lights to go around the house or white lights. DO NOT mix the two and certainly don’t make them flashing. Flashing lights are much like flashing women, they catch your attention for a second then they are really annoying.
Even though you will not see the cord at night make sure it is out of sight, nobody likes a yard that looks like it has bright orange veins. Make sure you assemble the holiday decorations with a smile because it’s all about the holiday cheer! Holiday Cheer People!!
Lastly take down your halloween decorations, seriously. They don’t and will not fit into the Christmas mantra no matter how many skeletons are next to the virgin Mary.
