What Color Are Your Christmas Lights?




There are two kinds of people in the world--white light people and multi-colored light people. Okay and maybe those who decorate with a single, non-white color. I'm going to include them with the colored light people because I think they secretly want to be colored light people, but are intimidated by the trash talk from the white light people who claim decorating with white lights is classier than using multi-colored lights. Piffle, I say. Yes, twinkly fairy lights are pretty, but I can see them any time I drive past a restaurant with a patio. What's special about that? For Christmas, bring on the color. Yes, I am a multi-colored Christmas light person. Not only that, but my tree lights twinkle. Individually. At night, I like to stare at the random shadows the lights make on the ceiling. If it's really quiet, I can hear a faint plinking sound as the bimetallic strips flex in the bulbs. To me, that's the sound of Christmas.

Which is it for you--white lights or colored lights?
