Christmas Lights in October – Preposterous! Ludicrous! Daft!
Who would consider such a notion? It’s a holiday faux pas. You can’t mix and match the holidays.
When I think of Halloween, I think of characters and cartoons. No one knows cartoons better than Disney does. They know how to crank up the fun on Halloween. But if you’d prefer to use your noggin to conjure up your own Halloween fun, imagine the possibilities of a Halloween Christmas light fusion. Here www.christmaslightsetc.
Put some pizzazz in a pumpkin: switch out that combustible lackluster flame for a snazzy chromatic Christmas light.
Your jack-o-lantern will be the coolest and safest in the neighborhood and won’t bake before the night is done unless you want pumpkin pie on Halloween instead of Thanksgiving.
Dress up a doorframe, primp up a picket fence, trim the candy bowl and table with red and green Christmas lights. The neighborhood kids, moms, and dads will flock to your door.
So stock up on colorful candy and ornamental bulbs.
Drape cobwebs across the front porch and in the front hall then embellish the look with the iridescent glow of Christmas lights. Turn a spider web into a flashy disco.
After all, Halloween is a time of frolicking fun. It’s like wearing your online avatar in the terrestrial world.
It is the perfect occasion to unleash your imagination.
Create a crown of battery powered flashing lights and wear it on your head then go trick or treating. You will amaze your friends. You’ll be the Pied Piper of Halloween, a beacon in the night.
Don’t stop there. There are more holidays to mix and match.
Build a snowman on the Fourth of July.
Give your mom an Easter Basket on Mother’s Day and then make her an egg soufflé.
The holidays bring us back to the innocence of childhood and the imagination that embodied our youth.
Don’t let it go! Let it glow! Brighten your life with blinking Christmas lights!
