Been there my friend. It’s been Christmas at my house since November 1st. Lights were good to go this year, but I spent half the night looking for a 3 way plug that I’ve been staring at on my workbench since last Christmas. Now that I needed it, it was gone. It somehow ended up in the bag with my grinder. Of course that was the last place I looked. It’s a must have for my front porch set up. Crisis avoided. Lights are up.
I usually start then too, but the wife had a wild hair this year. The Christmas is strong in our house this year. I come home to new decorations on the regular. There’s Christmas decorations in my laundry room if that gives you any idea.Man, you start early! We always start on Friday after Thanksgiving.
On year #4 of LED lights and no issues. Just make the switch to LED and never look back. Wife can change them from white or colored, or blinky and combos.
Half the lights in my pre-lit tree didn't work this year and my old icicle lights are burning up fuses. I guess its time to make the switch to LED at my house.
Is the Star of David really Christmas lights though Now will you leave it up there year round like the rest of JoCo?
You need to pay better attention in Sunday School! Bethlehem, the city of David.
Look close next time you ride by, it's been up the whole time. I just unplug the lights after Christmas ha. It's too heavy to drag up and down every year. I restring the lights up there.
Dang, that sounds like an intense star
Got my star restrung with lights last week. I built it for my grandmother 6 or 7 years ago when she first came down with Alzheimer's. She had ask my dad and grandad to put some kind of Christmas lights up there for 30yrs but they never got around to it. I wanted her to be able to see it while she could still enjoy it. She thoroughly enjoyed it, so much in fact that my grandad closed all the blinds on that side of their house so she would quit telling him about it every 2 minutes
For reference, the elevator is 90ft tall and the star is 8ft across. It nearly killed me dragging it up there, it got real heavy around 60ft
