Christmas Lights: clean, simple, classy (Part 3)

By Allyn Paul, filed under Christmas Lights.

This is the final post of a 3-part series on putting up Christmas lights. You can begin by reading part 1here.

Part 3 is all about the reward!
Now that you have your lights up, it is time to enjoy the clean and classy look you have achieved. At this point, you may want to add a wreath to the front door, but remember, keep the clean look…that means, no inflatable waving Santas, or plastic candy-canes littering your yard!


As you can see, our Christmas Light Display is clean and classy. The spacing is perfect. Putting up Christmas lights this way is not very tough and will turn heads in your neighborhood for sure.
You can buy C9 and C7 Christmas lights cheap here.

    3 simple words…..OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just kidding….it looks nice. I definitely agree about the blow up lawn ornaments, candy canes and all tacky decor.

    So, I take it the giant blow up snow globe and lifelike inflato reindeer are not in the plans for this Christmas??? Wal-Mart’s got some funky stuff for the outdoor decorating buff…

    I’m not saying I’m going to do it on my house, but hey why not…

    It’s so funny how everyone has their opinions about these decorations. Honestly (yes Patti) I am obsessively compulive about this!
    I really don’t have a problem WITH the blowup things..but during the day when they are not blown up, and they are laying out in the yard all deflated, it looks like a scene from a bad slasher movie. LOL
    Danny, you should put one on top of your crib!

    I agree with Samokdaddy that WALMART has alotta crap for the yard at double cheap prices.

    Two words – BO-RING!!

    Don’t get me wrong, I do like the precise, evenly spaced lighting scheme – I AM an Engineer after all – but to use only clear lights is just isn’t very interesting.

    It takes a balance between clear lights (which add brightness) and colored lights (which add variety) to make a real attention getting display.

    Hey there Musial,
    I appreciate your opinions on my Christmas light display. If clean and simple is boring to you, then so be it …and thanks for taking time to comment, I really appreciate it.
    PS–send me some pics of your light display and we’ll post them up eh?
