Today it was around 60 degrees– wow. I figured it’s officially after Thanksgiving, so it’s acceptable to hang up Christmas lights, and the weather isn’t going to get any better.
I went through the usual ordeal of plugging in each strand of lights, only to discover that at least three of them had the old “half the strand doesn’t light” problem. I fiddled with bulbs for a while, but in the end it proved easier to just buy a couple more boxes of lights.
The door was easy, and the tree required some ingenuity with an old broomstick with a bent nail in the end so I could reach the higher parts. All in all, not too bad!
