I bought some new icicle lights yesterday and in the evening we put them up. I only four boxes so they were just long enough to cover the front porch.
My neighbour had put up his lights the day before and I thought it was time to put up ours too!
In previous years we only had single strand lights, so this is a lot better looking than before! Nothing to brag about though when compared to the neighbours'!
We managed to keep the kids inside while we strung the lights. They wanted to come out for sure but since it was a little cold, we told them to stay inside.
My neighbour in front of us. This is how the lights should be strung right at the edge of the roof. We hung ours from inside! Easier to put up and take down! :-)
