I've become that guy. This is the laziest decorating I’ve ever done.

I bought new bushlights this year and we splurged to get one of those projectors to shoot lights on the garage. I bet my wife will want to hang the light icicles too though....

No outside decorations for us but we are fully stocked inside

Got the C9s on the eaves. Mrs. Hov has the wreath on the front door. Slowly we're getting "there" wherever "there" is.

That's a 100% more than what I do. I love Christmas, but I don't decorate inside or outside. I won't go into the reasons, but it's not because I think it's wrong.

A few years ago I saw Ho Ho Ho in Christmas lights on top of a house. I wasn't sure if that was their decoration or if they were advertising.

Maybe they were model train enthusiasts.

I hadn't thought of that.

I have an antique nativity inside that was bought at a 5 and dime almost 50 years ago and antique ceramic tree lights.

I used to have a nice wooden Jesus, Mary, and Joseph creche that I really liked. I don't have it anymore.

When we set up the nativity scene last year, we realized we were missing one of the wise men.

Without much thought I substituted in Luke Skywalker. But this didn't fly. My daughter said, "Dad, Luke Skywalker isn't a wise man. He kissed his sister." She was right. He had to go. So then I replaced him with Indiana Jones for obvious reasons...

Here's a daytime pic of my new recently-built pirogue in our annual interpretive Christmas scene.

Here's the night-time pic. Still a work in progress; I need to somehow make the pirogue more visible.

My wife found a light up plastic Holy Family for the front lawn at the thrift store for $3. New bulbs and fuses and it is good to go. She always wanted one as a kid growing up but it was more than they could afford.

Sounds like a good deal.
