This year, while not my first year owning a home by any stretch - is the first year that I have lights on my own house! There's a company that does our landscaping - that also does Christmas lights now. It's very inexpensive...they set it all up, put it on a timer - and take it down at the end of the season. And what's even better is that when you order next year they give you a discount so that everything is less expensive each year you use them, which allows you to build on if you so choose to. Pretty nice!
I take my kids out one or two nights a week after dinner to look at the lights. I get them into their cozy clothes...fill a cup with hot cocoa and go to different neighborhoods and towns to go look at the lights. And while they love turning the corner to our street and seeing our house, it's not the same for them. I'm the one who is really excited when I see my own house aglow.
