You have most of the outside of your house covered with lights, do you REALLY need to have one random string on your garage blinking? How does that make any sense whatsoever aesthetically?

You mad bro?
This happens at one or two houses in my neighborhood every year. I figure it's just old folks not knowing or caring how to stop the blinking.

My money is on sleep deprivation. The little things are what bug the most when yer cranky.
The people down the street from me wrapped lights around the trunk and part of one branch of a single tree. That is all.
I was going to suggest that 247sports had something to do with the design... but then I realized you said lights, not candles

That is the best light setup ever. That is a guy finally tired of his wife bitching at him to put up the Christmas lights. Do it really half assed, come in, yell "They are up! Now shut the fuck up!," and sit down to drink a beer.
Poor people suck.
Your a retard.
I'm sure it is just a symbolic statement representing the last shred of individual hope crying out in a sea of conformity.
......or maybe they don't know about the little white bulb with the red tip.

Trevor you seem a tad obsessed with Christmas lights.

Have I mentioned my stance on fake garland yet? Go real or just don't put it up at all.
Don't think I've ever seen real garland.
Well now you have. Most tree farms or even Lowes and Home Depot carry it. If you are local to the Lansing area, might as well buy it from a tree farm that was started by an MSU Forestry prof...
I'd love to buy from them.

So that stuff really IS called garland? I was arguing with my girlfriend about this the other day. I thought garland was the metallic looking stuff...but I guess she was right. She did go to Michigan after all.
ah the "lasso" or " comic book talk bubble" design.
That is also called garland. Warning: Don't use the metallic stuff if you have pets.
My least favorite is when people mix warm and pure white lights together, especially on the same tree.
This appears to be a trend. A bunch of houses around me do this. It looks hideous and lazy.
