Default first time putting up xmas lights

My roommate and I did this today. This is the first time I have ever put up lights at my own house. I am pretty impressed. It sticks out like a sore thumb since we are the first in the neighborhood to get them up.

exactly, except the cold is already here. I was wearing a winter coat, gloves and stocking hat the entire time putting them up. It was in the 40'* today. With all those angles and such it would be impossible if we get any snow.

Wow, nice house.

Of course, it would be more funnier if you watched your roommate slip and fall off the roof into the snow..and if he'* not too badly hurt, laugh at him

Not bad. They came out pretty nice.

As far as too early, just dont plug'em in until December.

Still think it'* a silly tradition.
By we, do you mean your parents pay it or do you personally chip in the extra $50 in power to light up the air.
We are so energy conscience these days and its amazing to me that this is still done.

We forget the real meaning of Christmas.

Oh ya right....it'* giving......to the Power company too.

Thanks Paul for ruining the spirit.

I am 22 years old. This is MY house, I pay the bills.

Because I put up Christmas lights I forgot the reason we celebrate Christmas? I think not. Please keep your negative Scroogeness to yourself.
