When I lived in Richmond, there was this house on a residential block I would walk by all the time. In front of the house, there was a small tree, and the owner would put a different color of string lights on it every month. Clover-shaped green lights in march, orange pumpkin-shaped lights in October, purple lights in April, etc. It was more exciting to me than changing the page on my calendar the 1st of every month.

I love the Captain Kirk ornament!!

Hi Russell, I've been reading your blog for awhile, but I think this is the first time I've commented here.

Anyway, if you want more "decorating festivals," you might want to visit us in the US--or at least in my neighborhood here in Chicago. Some people here decorate at the drop of a hat, it seems: Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, July 4, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are all fair game for twinkling lights, baubles, and lawn ornaments. And I'm sure there's a few others in there as well that I've forgotten about.

Or you could always just start a decorating trend in the UK. But what would the neighbors think? ;-)
