My change from '11 to '12 will be my switch from white 'icicle' out-door lights to the old traditional multi-colored large bulb outdoor lights. I am sick and tired of untangling those darn things .. of course I am going to have to get new hedge lights also so they match. I will probably update my lawn inflatables also as the current are getting close to retirement.
2012 will be the year of color at my house.
"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens
