At least with reserved seats you can come late if you want. Previously coming 10 min late sometimes meant getting split up and getting the worst seats.

And we’d be getting paid to watch network tv or sports.

When it's just perfect rows of perfectly spaced generic lights that all you did was hand off to some dude on a crane you've never met... it just feels so sterile and lifeless. Like how Walmart gets their Christmas lights put up. It has no life, it doesn't say anything about you or your personality... it's just Christmas lights for the sake of having them.

Anyways, that's all. Weird post, lol.
I mean, I kind of like looking at these impressive lights displays. It’s a big part of the Christmas season for me.

But I have respect for the homeowner who gets out there and cares enough to string their own lights. I have great memories of helping my Dad with that every year.

So I totally hear you.

I don’t know. I put up lights every year, but this year we got the permanent LEDs, and frankly they’re awesome. Perfectly straight for the OCD side of things, dozens of patterns and options, and they look really nice. What’s not to like?

What the hell? My kids argue every year over who has to go out in the cold and help.
