The calendars just turned to October, which means that an exciting season is upon us: Holiday lights season Whether you’re a traditionalist and just go for Christmas lighting on your home, or you love to go all-out and even put lights on your home for Halloween, it’s almost time for our fall/winter holidays to begin.
Getting into Christmas Lights Season – A His & Her Perspective
Around your homes, it might look a little something like this:
Her Perspective on Holiday Lights
She’s excited and pulling out all of the fall decorations, adorning the house for the upcoming fall season. Kids costumes have been picked out for weeks. She’s already starting to buy Halloween candy at the stores. Halloween weekend is booked. And if she’s super into it, she’s bugging her husband to just put up a few simple stands of glowing orange lights to match the rest of the home. The Halloween party MUST have lights! Once November hits, her sights will be set on Christmas lights and she’s already gathering ideas.
His Perspective on Holiday Lights
Can’t believe it’s this season, yet again. It seems like he just took last year’s lights down and figured out how to safely store them in the garage. Thoughts of pulling them out again are daunting, not to mention the typical “check every bulb” mandate that he feels like he must do. (Thanks a lot, Christmas Vacation.) Soccer games have his weekends booked, yet he needs to figure out how to find time to put lights on the house. He’s trying to calculate how many nice weekends are left so that he can get the Christmas lights on the house before it turns cold. And he’s not exactly jumping up and down to add the “orange lights” for Halloween before the Christmas lights. So – how to love his wife yet avoid a big fight is quite the dilemma.
