A Tour of Outdoor Christmas Decorations
Neighborhood Outdoor Christmas Decorations
Outdoor Christmas decorations are popular in my neighborhood so on a beautiful December 1st evening with a full moon and a clear crisp sky, I decided it would be a good time to tour my neighborhood, camera in hand, and view the neighborhood Christmas decorations.
Everybody seemed to enjoy my tour of Halloween decorations In October so a repeat of the neighborhood in the Christmas splendor seemed to be in order.
My neighborhood goes all out for Christmas with most every house having some type of decoration. Many houses have the classy white lights, like the one in this photo, but others venture into various themes. I found lots of lighted deer and some wonderful inflatable Christmas characters. One house even had Christmas music piped out for all that pass by to hear!
I had a very enjoyable walk and I hope you enjoy the tour.

New Camera=Better Photos - Canon Powershot
I got a new camera this year and it really made a difference in my Christmas decoration photos. I could take good shots of the Christmas lights with little blur when using the nighttime setting.
Reindeer and Sleigh
Lighted Penguin Adds to Christmas Decor - lighted walk
It is hard to get good photographs in the evening without a tripod, but I think you can get the idea of these decorations from this photo. The walk is lined with luminaries and there is a cute little lighted penguin in the front yard.
Lighted Bushes - colored holiday lights
This house had a simple decor with multi-colored bushes and garland around the railing.
Classic but Beautiful White Lights
This house just has their bushes decorated with white lights. It is a simple but beautiful look.
Santa Land Display
Candy Canes for your Outdoor Display - Christmas lights to line your walk
I think these candy canes would be great to line your walk or driveway.
Lighted Deer by Pond - beautiful Christmas decor
This house is a bit more elaborate. I love the lighted columns and the blue lights around the planting area. It makes it look as if the deer is stopping by for a drink. This house is just a couple doors down from mine and I'm always impressed with their decor.
Total Christmas Decorations
Here you see the deer pond as part of the total picture.
Outdoor Rope Lights - great for columns
These rope lights would work great for lighting columns or banisters.
