Hang ‘Em High

The Christmas lights that is. I have no clue why I put that title but I did. More so, I had the title and then I decided to write about Christmas lights. Yeah, I don’t know either. I basically just needed a place to come and complain about what I saw the other day. I was driving through a more expensive neighborhood near me and I say a “Pool & Spa Services” truck parked on the road. I figured someone was having their hot tub serviced or was just late winterizing their pool. As I drove closer, I saw about 8 individuals with ladders and boxes hanging lights on this particular house. Someone had paid someone else, to hang lights for Christmas.

Granted, there are probably plenty of reasons for this. The first that came to mind, was that the home owners are old and can’t get up on a ladder and have no family in the area that could come and help them do it. If that is the case, with no family or friends, why decorate for a lonely holiday.  Another reason is that perhaps … yeah … can’t think of another one other than they have more money than they apparently know what to do with.

To me, although I hate doing it myself in the cold, hanging the lights is part of Christmas. The untangling, the swearing, the multiple trips to buy new lights … If I had the time and money. I would Griswold my house in a heartbeat. It is what brings a family together during the holidays. Well, the trips to the ER after falling off a ladder does that too but still.

Anyway, that is all I wanted to rant about today. I am trying to ramp up to the new year to be more rant-ee and more annoying next year so, have fun waiting on that one.

 

 

On a side note

For the very first time in my life I am saying that I like the Old Navy commercials. I hate the fact that Chevy sold out to Old Navy, because I really don’t like them as a whole, they just annoy me … however, I love the spoofs of the Vacation movies. Even having the old Rustys and Audreys show up with the new ones. They are fun.
