Wife enjoys decorating the inside. I paid the man for the outside. I want nothing to do with it.....

I know this is THT where it's frowned upon to pay somebody to do work for you; but I got to hunt all weekend and didn't touch a ladder. I'm happy with it.

Wife has been decorating the house since 8:15 this morning. She is about half done. Other than lights, she has not started on the tree yet either. I still have to put the yard deco out too.

I love decorating for Christmas, I've never calculated how long it takes me but I'm guessing 40+ hours. Outside only

Wife and I agreed to going a little overboard on Christmas decorating this year. We have 3 trees decorated inside: a flocked artificial tree, or regular art. tree and a real Leyland Cypress that we cut down ourselves Friday after Thanksgiving. The formal dining room is done-up as well as the fireplace mantle. We don't have any other "scenery" bakers or angels, etc. I'd say inside is a tasteful 9.. Outside is looking good too.. probably a 8.5 out of 10. I still want to wrap one more oak tree in the side yard. The annual boat parade is next Saturday... we got 3rd place last year and I'm wanting 1st place this year. I bought a 10.5 ft snowman head to put on the bimini top and last years santa with sleigh and reindeer to hang off the back. Plus 2,000 LED lights.. The boat will be a 10 of 10. And after the parade these decorations are going to the yard!

Side note: Wife hates inflatables and usually color lights.. but she came around this year on color lights.

At nightfall on Saturday we walked our neighborhood with our 3yr and 6yr old boys. Their excitement makes it all worth the time & effort. Oh yeah, everything is on remotes or timer so the only thing I have to do every day is water a tree.

Merry Christmas!

Wife had 14 crates for the inside, three trees and a few things that are too big for a bag or a crate so inside I would say 10, outside since we live in the hood and it will just attract people to our house 0.

Wife does inside and I start the outside and help inside afterwards. I would say 8 hours. Inside there's alot going so I'd say a 6. Outside 3 but used to me closer to an 7 but I don't do the ladder thing anymore.

Our Christmas tree is a small evergreen bush that we bought last year.
We'll get our granddaughter some presents but that is it.

I was struggling to get the damn lights outside to come on and stay on. They'd light up and make the entire neighborhood shine but then they'd go right back off.

Turns out it was tied to a switch in the garage that my wife kept flipping on and off at that exact moment.

Neighbors next door were trying to get it on and the light was so blinding it made them fall down the stairs repeatedly. They weren't too happy.

His wife in a past life was an urban sombrero salesman for J. Peterman.

I did get my jelly of the month club membership though from work, pretty excited about that.
