Christmas Decorations

My darling hubby works so hard to put up Christmas decorations in our yard every year. He is Clark Griswold from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Every year he spends about a week putting all the lights on the house and the manger scene with Baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph, the Wise Men, Shepards and the animals. Also assorted angels, snow men and deer. He loves doing this and all the neighbors appreciate it.

The only problem is the wiring in our house. The first rain we have, it trips the circuit breakers and we can't light the lights. Not only that, but this morning I went out to find that we had a big wind storm along with the rain and the manger came crashing down on the holy family and the cross was snapped in half. Every sign in the yard was torn down. If I didn't know better, I would think that vandals had done it. I guess we will go out this morning as soon as it's light and set up the display once more.

:( I am sorry to hear that all happened. There has got to be a way to fix the circuts somehow...Get an electrician out there. Remember a couple of years ago there were 2 hair dryers going and it tripped circuts.

Good luck getting everything back together. Take a picture and post it when you can!
