yard, making sure to include your bushes and trees. Then, have fun making a diagram of various outdoor Christmas
light display ideas. When you decorate this way first, instead of buying and trying to place everything first,

of these lights and displays. You might want to keep your outdoor Christmas light displays on a timer so that
they’re not running all the time; that will definitely save you money.
