This can also be a fun event for the family and a lot of families and neighbors alike will do it as a tradition each year. Some people may find them self selves looking for a modest traditional look of putting up red and green Christmas lights around the house such is on the trees and across their gutters topping off the decorations with a pine needle reef on their front door.
