All white or colored lights on YOUR Christmas tree?

Bignuf Bignuf
We DID get a tree put up last night (Black Friday). Early for us...but we had time. In our neighborhood, WHITE lights....totally, indoors and out, are the standard. Folks with any colored lights get VERY strange looks and comments. Other areas seem to be ablaze with color.

What is YOUR home done in? What is your neighborhood like...mixed white and colored lights or mostly one kind or another?

Our neighborhood has no "standard". You see all kinds of lights.

Our working class vintage (1960's) neighborhood is pretty much a mix of everything - all out blinding light displays, nothing, a string of lights (either one color or all colors) along a roof line, a couple of nativity scenes, etc. And the bulbs are all different, too - some neighbors have LED, some have the large bulbs, some the small lights between those two types.

Got a bit of everything here.

Oh, and we do put lights on our palm trees.

My tree varies each year depending on my mood and wether or not I am planning to do pictures of it. When I lan to do pictures of it I do a classic all white light set but when I just want to have fun I go for as many colors as possible

I much prefer white lights. When I was little we had strings of both, but by the time I was like 10 I had talked my mom into white lights only. I just think it looks classier. Especially because we lived in an old stone house and the coloured lights just didn't suit it.

Where we used to live was a mixture, but where we live now everyone else on the street has coloured lights.

We have colored lights, and all the neighbors have different things.

Our tree is pre-lit with colored lights. I haven't noticed any lights or anything up at any of the other apartments or houses around me.

our tree is traditional multi-coloured. our outdoor lights used to be multicoloured but now we've settled for pre-lit white garland around our porch

Oops I also meant to pick "other". We switch it up but usually they are all-white for the tree because we have some crazy ornaments there that we want to show off, and colored on the roof! But, sometimes we'll do the other way around, or both the same. All depends on what we are putting outside!

Ours has multi colored and multifunction lights. The neighborhood is very rural and if someone decorates it is pretty much for themselves and maybe their families. Not the other neighbors who probably won't see.

My tree is multi colored, and so is my neighborhood, but usually i see blue lights more then anything else.

We only have a little tiny tree which I spray painted blue and then covered in glitter. We use rainbow lights and tiny rainbow glass ornaments.

We've had a green artificial Christmas tree for about 5 years now all white lights. But to give it contrast we add lots of ornaments with different colors that add a nice look. PS. Got the tree at COSTCO at a great price!

I like blue lights. Little too plain on their own, so I have a string of blue and a string of red led lights for the tree. I also have a multi colored blinking string that I hang up.

Sometimes, I mix it up and do it the other way around

Sounds like my dad's place in the country before my parents got back together - he jokes that he decorated for the deer and the turkeys.

White lights are pretty, but colorful lights are just more fun!

We always go multicolored inside, but have been doing white lights outside. We will be adding the to outside lights next year though

I think we're a minority in the neighborhood. I have white icicle lights for the outside and white lights in our tree. However, most of the neighborhood is ablaze of color.

We have white lights. Just because that's what we happen to have.

I only have white lights, and if I have any say in the matter, will continue to only have white lights for the rest of my life. I do not like colored ones... they just... aren't my style lol.

So far I've noticed white lights across the street and some blue icicles lights next door. I think my neighborhood is pretty mixed. I love both white and multicolor lights! White is pretty but multicolored reminds me of vintage Christmas and I'm really into that this year.

I don't have a tree and don't intend to get one. The ones I have seen so far are all colored lights though.

All holidays are just the same as another day; they're over rated and don’t represent what it was meant to stand for anymore. Now it's: how much did it cost? We don't decorate anymore, my 12 year old doesn't mind that we go out to eat, she gets a few presents, but other than that we don't go out of our way. So far in the 4 years we've been in the house I haven't noticed any type of decorations in any of our neighbour yards.
