Christmas lights & foil trees in the Sacramento area

I came across the property below the other day while on an inspection. Granted there are probably some more grandiose examples of festive lights to share, but let’s pause for a moment to recognize the brilliance of using foil on trees for Christmas decor. After passing by this house I’ll be honest to say I’m feeling a bit inspired to find a way to use foil in my front yard. For me foil is one of those amazing products (like duct tape) because there is so much you can do with it.

It really adds to a sense of festivity and even neighborhood pride when residents decorate during the holidays. Do you agree? On the contrast, when streets are pitch black and there are no lights in sight, how does that feel? If you’re planning a trip to enjoy Christmas lights, Realtor Gena Riede has a very detailed list of Christmas Lights in the Sacramento Area on her blog. Check it out and maybe try driving by a few new addresses this year. My family definitely enjoys lights in the Fab 40s, Arden Park, T Street and Dovewood Court in Orangevale.

Where do you recommend going to see lights in the Sacramento area? What do you think of the foil trees below? Points for creativity? Tacky?

      Thanks Gena. Merry Christmas to you and your family too. It’s hard to believe how close we are to Christmas. I hope you are full of business, but also getting some rest and relaxation too.

      Thanks, Tom. There sure are some creative people out there. I had a guy on Twitter respond to a RT of Gena’s post I mentioned here and he shared what he did. He has a display of the video game Angry Birds in his front yard. This took some time and I might have to drive my kids by to see it as they’d get a kick out of it.
