  1. #1 It Has Begun: The Madness Season. 
    I was informed this morning that tomorrow we would hang our Christmas lights. This declaration was delivered in that same cheerful yet dictatorial tone that always seems to accompany every disaster in my adult life.

    "Yeah, sure it's totaled."

    "Well, now there's your problem right there. Ittby bitty thing to cost that much, ain't she?"

    "It's just going have to come out, Ginger."

    "You see, Ma'am, now it's a felony."

    Last year, Mr. Snaps was prevented from displaying his exterior lighting dominance by a series of persistent storms that started the day after Thanksgiving and kept up until Christmas. As a result, he was unable to have the usual festive confabs with the neighbor guys about voltage and LEDs versus whatever. This put him in a nasty mood.

    To forestall any such mishaps this year, we will do them tomorrow. I recently spent the better part of an hour wiring a huge freaking wreath with "satin" lights and a pair of giant, light-up bells. :eek:

    When do you normally put Christmas lights up (if you do)? When do you turn them on? When do you take down? Do you think drinking early in the day will help? Have you ever gotten divorced over exterior lighting? Explain.

    Good for you. I think they should go up the day after Halloween.

    Just for the head 'sploding factor.

    Sympathies dear Ginger.

    We are going to decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving. The kids made me promise to put a "Big" light set on the house this year to make up for the crappy inadaquate Wreath that we hung up last year. :D

    Tis the season.

    I actually wanted to do something like this a couple of years ago but Mr. Killjoy nixed the idea. :mad:

    I've driven by a house that had their up for a week already.

    A bordering town also has all their stuff up on the light poles and in the trees already.

    If we put it up too early we get sick of it.

    No, but your GPS coordinates would be peachy.
