For years we've decorated the blue trees (can't find the correct species name) in front of our house. They started out at a height that didn't require even a step ladder to get lights to the very top. Now they've grown so high that I can barely reach to top with our fully extended aluminum ladder and, even then, I have to "cheat" a bit by mounting the very highest lights on two foot bamboo stakes and hoisting them to the top where I can't reach.
No matter. Every year it's worth the effort, especially for the reaction of kids who come by with their parents. Apparently, the display has achieved a certain reputation with a number of neighbors commenting on how they look forward to them and were concerned that they might not go up this year.
The video is a little retrospective and our holiday wish for all our friends and neighbors.
