    • I have given up as we have had things stolen (yes, stolen) from our front lawn, and one year a small group of teens threw a heavy rock through one of our front windows and broke it (during the holiday season)...so I feel jinxed now to display outdoor decor...very sad!

    • So sorry to hear that Mary. Some people are heartless!
      I hope that when you get that strong desire to  display your decoration again, you will!

      We haven’t displayed our outdoor decoration in several years. I’m thinking about whether or not this will be the year to display it. After I complete the interior, I’m pretty tired out! But, I love Christmas/decor and all it represents so much!heart

    • I’m pretty lazy about doing that, I have to admit that my husband does it every year.  I’m glad he does.  He put’s up lights and a tree in under the house (our house is built up on stilts).  He always makes it festive.  We don’t put out yard decorations, just lights and a tree.

      Mary, that really sucks.  My childhood home, I recall my dad put up red christmas lights every year (remember the big bulbs that had to be individually screwed in?  LOL), well kids used to unscrew them and bust them in the street.  Sad, that was over 40 years ago and it sounds like it’s worse.tongue out

    • Just a thought...I saw a crochet pattern for making Christmas lightbulbs on a website Tulip...they would look beautiful hanging from a tree. If I find the time, I’m making some for one of my trees outdoors!

    • @Marya1961..That is sad!heartbreak It’s a shame you can’t put anything out during the holidays unless you screw them to the ground or actually have a locked gate. Otherwise, you can kiss your decorations goodbye cause people can be so rude as to take them.frown

      I only put up lights outside. Was thinking maybe a couple lit up trees in the front yard, but I am afraid they might get taken so who knows. I might give it a try.
