Holiday decor is something that is limited inside our house! I can’t wait for the day where I can put all of my stuff out without worrying if someone is going to break it or spill stuff all over it! Huxx is just the right height & age to be in to allll the things, so we definitely made sure the outside of our house was Christmas-sy! My kids are so excited for everything Christmas so we are doing all the decorating, getting our house Santa ready (stockings & a tree because #baby), and just making sure we have everything in place before the hustle & bustle starts full swing! There is just something so magical about Christmas lights am I right? I literally get all giddy when I see them going up on other houses (which means it’s totally acceptable if other people are doing it before me to go ahead & get mine up eventough my husband disagrees) and it’s even better when you have kids who ask for them & then see their faces light up the first time they see them on YOUR house! I just can’t y’all…so if you are feeling kind of put out by all the things you have to do before Christmas let me tell you 4 reasons you NEED Christmas lights on your house this year! It’s the ultimate holiday decor and I know I’ll miss these baby hands and messes someday so I’m soaking in my lightly decorated house!
1. Your Kids
There isn’t much in this world that beats Christmas lights in the eyes of a child! I promise you this, no matter how much they cost, how much work or time it takes to get them up it will all be worth it the minute you see their face! We got ours put up yesterday and literally the entire time the guys were working my kids kept asking “are they done yet?” “can we go look at them” “are the lit up yet” “how did they get on our roof” I mean the questions continued alllll day but when we finally got to walk outside and see the finished product they were estatic!

2. Brings Neighborhood Cheer
It is always a family favorite of ours to drive around the most lit up neighborhoods! There is just something about seeing house after house lit up that just makes it seem so magical and cheerful! It really does kick off the holiday season!a I can’t wait to see our street come to life with lights and really hope everyone participates!
3. You can support a local business
This year we lucked out and found a local company who believes providing excellent service more than anything! Motion Lawn Services does so much more than Christmas lighting/decor but we were so impressed with their pricing and ability to get us scheduled! We couldn’t be more thankful for the excellent job! The guys at Motion Lawns were super professional, came & got straight to work, worked efficiently and left my house and walkways looking beautiful with Christmas lights! As I said earlier, they do provide other services such as fall leaf clean up, mowing, flower bed clean outs, hedge trimming & seasonal clean up so now that we’ve found them I’m sure they will be at our house more often! They are Tech graduate owned & operated which we love! Anytime we can support a Red Raider grad business, we are so in! If you are in the market for any of the services I mentioned, I can’t recommend them enough! Below is some more info on their services so feel free to contact them and make sure you mention that EVERYDAY WITH BAY sent you for 10% off!
4. Keep a Christmas Tradition
Christmas lights have been around for many many years! Since the 17th century people have been placing some sort of light on the outside of their houses or on their trees! It used to be small candles but with the danger & expenses people have evolved it into lights over the years! It is something that I hope to see around for many years, and look forward to keeping this tradition alive as long as we can!
I am so happy with how our Christmas lights turned out! They are the perfect holiday decor addition & my kiddos couldn’t be more excited for the Christmas season! Now with the lights turned on Kaige keeps asking “Is it Frissmas tomorrow” #heartmelt
