Twenty five years ago we decorated for every holiday. At Christmas we put up tons of lights, lawn ornaments, sleigh, reindeer, trees, presents etc. We have a huge Silver maple tree and I would fill it full of lights. I had to climb an eight foot step ladder and hold onto a 20 foot long pipe to get them anywhere near the top. People driving down the road would pull up and ask us what it was supposed to be, and I would tell them just lights in a tree. We had a yard full of decorations and hanging ornaments from that tree, every year.
We decorated for Valentine's day. I made a 4 foot heart out of wire and attached red lights and hung it in the front window. That led to a Shamrock on St. Patrick's Day and a Rabbit on Easter, a Flag for Flag day and 4th of July, a pumpkin on Halloween, and a turkey on Thanksgiving. Back then you couldn't buy any of those decortions so I made them. I should have patented my idea. Now you can buy all kinds of them but most are very small, mine were 4 foot wide. People would come up to the door and ask where they can buy one, and were upset when I told them I made them.
Of course the light bulbs would lose their color so I ended up making them several times over. I started with 12 gauge electrical wire because it would form easy, then I tried wooden cutouts, and eventually switched to flat aluminum rods that would last a lot longer. We also put up those blow up decorations for each holiday, when they became available.
Then I got old. Need I say more?
