After that go in the house and remove the fuses to the cloths dryer. Sit back and wait. When she tells you the dryer doesn’t work you just tell her you installed a solar powered dryer and it will save so much electricity.
LOL I've all ready have one of those , just need to switch the breaker off.

There you go. Now that you have a plan we expect to see you next year on that TV show Great Christmas Light Fight.

Here is one for inspiration.

tuffy -

The answer is "BAH HUMBUG!!"

When the kids like it and the neighbors do not complain, the warm feeling when you drive home is a big factor.

Neighbors may complain about the light and traffic and glare, but they may either turn off all lights or add some for the next year.

Grand kids have a strong voice until you ask them to help stringing and untangling everything during the installation "AND" the stripping/packing and storage. - get them involved!!

I've got a few neighbors who go in for the "Christmas Vacation" lightshow. It doesn't bother me but I wouldn't want it on my house/lawn. It would make me annoyed driving home to that!

I like my Christmas decorations to be discovered, not announced. You walk up to my front door, and in the little side window by the door you can see across the hallway and into the living room, where we have a nice brightly lit tree. From the right angle you can see it from across the street---it just doesn't reach out and grab you by the throat.
