Christmas-man has shown a merry disposition
This year I think it vill be more decorations outside here in Sweden, LED lights are really getting affordable now, due to electrical prices are high here in Sweden.

Usually on our street there are only a few houses (including ours) that decorate for Christmas ... this year 1/2 of the houses on our street are all decorated and lite up... so we are seeing more houses decorated for Christmas.

There are definitely more people decorating in my neighborhood than last year. I thought it was just our area, but then last night Mom and I took a ride out to Gamber. There were a lot more decorations everywhere.

Quite a few houses decorated here, but I think alot more will spring up this weekend. Some folks seem quite late this year, but I'm sure it'll be as good if not better than last year.

The number of light displays doubled on my street this year...to FOUR.

hah hah.

My next door neighbor decorated their house with some neat C9s in jewel colors. I really like their display. So on my very small street it's me, nextdoor neighbor, and a couple of guys down the street. I love that they've gotten more Christmasy this year, even if it is only a small number of people.

Just the same few of us in our neighborhood. We take the highways home, so we don't see other neighborhoods. Maybe Dh will want to take a drive one night before Christmas!
