we may not have blinds, painted walls or adult furniture, but we do have CHRISTMAS LIGHTS! and a front gutter that looks very suspicious., a photo by calnenearley on Flickr.
Growing up, we used to travel to lovely Chicago suburb of Orland Park for our Christmas celebrations. My grandparents decorated their house with those big, fat ceramic bulbs until one year someone sole them. Yes, someone stole their lights. From that day on I vowed to put them up when I got a house and yes, bitches, I followed through.
And just an FYI, ceramic bulbs means ceramic bulbs. They break and will cut your hands.
