Bossy’s Favorite Things March 3, 2010 Christmas lights all year round. Except Bossy doesn’t refer to them as Christmas lights, she refers to them as festive. The wreath? We’ll talk… Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmail « Previous Post: Bossy’s Favorite ThingsNext Post: » Bossy’s Favorite Things

Over here we call them ‘fairy lights’ I love em!

I do this too! Except the wreath part.

I’ve been known to leave the wreath up when the finches build a nest in it. Then it’s a spring wreath. To me, anyway.

It’s a winter wreath. One of the things I loved most about Tavern on the Green in Central Park were their lights.

I have “fairy lights” on my back porch. I love them.

We do this up here in Alaska, keep them up until the last Iditarod dog team comes home (or something). After January 3rd they’re immediately “Fairy Lights”, too.

I use this same reasoning for my Fairy O’Lantern, home to several colonies of fruit flies.

I love the fairy lights, and it’s good to keep the fairies happy! ; )

I like the “fairy lights” moniker. Thanks for the concept.
I’ve been slowly disconnecting my “winter lights” as the days (finally, and now, quickly) get longer. When the sun outshines the lights, it’s time to take them down. Unfortunately, “down” = heaped on surfaces immediately below wherever in the house they were strung. I’m wondering when/if I’ll get them onto spools and at least to the garage if not the attic…

I keep my white window candles lit until the first day of spring. It keeps me sane.

Haven’t we already covered the topic of the wreath?

Nothing beats twinkle.
