At first I thought I’d buy enough strands of lights to decorate the evergreen tree to the left of the front of A Bitty Better. In fact, I told my dear wife Karen that was the plan for our first Christmas in the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville.
Then I took a good look up. And up. And up. I thought about the gap between that tree and the house, and how I’d maneuver our extension ladder. I looked at our five-foot Werner and knew it would not get the job done.
I changed my mind.
It’s not an evergreen, but I believe the tree in the center of our front lawn accepted the 300-light strand I purchased for this purpose very well, indeed.
Winding them from top-to-bottom was a bit of a challenge without the cushion of needled branches.
I like the effect, sparse and wintry-like.
Our neighbors on one side took a different decorational direction.
What sort of holiday decorations have you seen where you live? What do you or have you put up on your property? What would be your dream set-up for the holidays, and why?
