|Colourful Christmas lighting display. Love this!|
As Christmas approaches, our neighbourhood is becoming brighter and more colourful every evening as every dad on the block tries to outdo his neighbour.
But I have always lusted after Clark Griswold's "twenty-five thousand imported Italian twinkle lights" from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - and I would do it if I could!

|Absolutely insane lighting. Awesome!|
|Front door garland & twinkle lights|
This elegant front entryway (left) is a nice way to incorporate lighting in the outdoor decor for the holidays - and it would be pretty simple to wind the lights around the garland, wreaths and topiaries once, then leave them assembled when they are removed and packed away at the end of the holiday season every year.
Adding lights to a fir wreath is a great way to warm up a front porch and outdoor decor for Christmas cheer both day and night.
|Grapevine ball with white lights|
I like the idea of wrapping white twinkle lights around a trellis, and it's something that could be left up year-round - festive during the holidays, but lovely all lit up for a summer evening's barbeque as well.
The same is true of simple decorative grapevine balls - wrap them in little white lights (although I would use more lights than the average person, myself - I'm of the "more is more" school of thought when it comes to Christmas decorating). Pretty covered in snow during the holiday season and an interesting way to light the garden during the spring and summer.
