Every holiday season, my children beg my husband to put up Christmas lights. Sometimes they can convince their dear old dad to hang something along the gutters. No one was impressed with the simple strand running across the top of the garages, though. One year, I managed to wrap some fancy lights around the deck only to find that the outlet out back was busted, thus no lights. Last year, the only lights we had were the one strand that I wrapped around a bush in the front by the porch. Not very exciting. Boring some might say. Totally LAME according to our children.
What would my kids like to see? They want the glamour, the glitz. They want us to have an astronomical electric bill for the month of December. They want something that puts Clark Griswold from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation to shame.
My kids want what these people have ...
What kind of Christmas lights do you put up? Anyone have a musical light show in their neighborhood? Who's like me and has the inside of the house decked out but the outside looks a little lacking in spirit?
One lucky commenter will win a copy of my September release THE BETTER MAN. That is hopefully NOT lame :)
