I love Christmas decorations, especially the outdoor kind. They bring back some many memories of riding in the car with my family looking a the neighborhood lights as well as going to big holiday displays around town. They are a fantastic way to spread Christmas cheer to all who pass your house. Maybe you’ve never done outdoor decorations before, or maybe you’ve done them for years but it’s always been the same thing and you want to freshen up the look a bit. Whatever the case may be, it can be a very overwhelming task, especially since there are some many great ideas. Because we believe in the power of Christmas cheer, we want to make sure everyone can easily experience it. which is why we’ve compiled a list of 18 of our favorite outdoor Christmas decorations.
