Not a fan of the nets.
Especially the kind you describe, where it looks like they just tossed it over the tops of the bushes, lol. I mean really... don't even bother, people.
Non-flashing multi-colored lights for me.
Although the all white ones look classy and I do like them, I prefer the riot of cheerful color. Also they look really cool shining underneath snow.
How about the giant gumdrop lights? I actually like them, but I do not like it when people mix the tiny ones with the giant gumdrops, that just looks silly.
You know how some people have blue Christmas lights? My grandmother always used to tell me how back in the 1940s during WWII that was the only kind of lights you were allowed to have because apparently they were harder to see from the sky, in case of an air raid. Can you imagine, being a pilot and aiming your bombs towards the Christmas lights?
Anyway she hated the blue lights because they reminded her of that. We always had a million colored lights all over the outside of our house, lol.
