Holiday lights – Rice Park originally uploaded by Teresa Boardman
Last week’s poll asked if you had done your holiday shopping yet and how you went about doing it (online, Black Friday, etc). It would appear that the majority of you are procrastinators as most people responded that they had not yet done their holiday shopping. Based on the way the media portrays the kickoff to the season you would be led to believe that everyone is done by the Monday night after Thanksgiving–obviously not.
This week’s poll comes from all the driving around we did over the last few days to get the Minnesota Metro Holiday Lights Map ready. My wife and I prefer multicolored lights to white (in fact I find all white light displays pretentious and nearly obnoxious) and based on the observations we made during our trek it would appear that the majority of those with outdoor displays of any kind are typically doing it with strings of multicolored lights. White light just seems so god awful boring and multicolored lights seem so happy and festive. To each there own I guess.
Holiday Light Color Preference
- Multicolored (54.0%, 29 Votes)
- White (41.0%, 22 Votes)
- I like the dark (6.0%, 3 Votes)
Total Voters: 54
So I wonder what you guys prefer? Have you taken a look at the holiday light map and have your added any locations yourself (if not, get on that shit damn it!) Whatever you have to say about the white vs multicolored light displays go ahead and comment on as I’d love to hear your opinion on this one!
