If you like white, and are trimming your house in white, then the white reindeer in the front yard would look lovely, as would a white wreath on the door. Cool, elegant and classy.
Me? I prefer the jumbled colored lights and I don't care if they wink and blink in synch or not. It reminds me of when the kids were small and 'helped' to trim the tree. They made decorations in sunday school, and in elementary school, which looked godawful, but they were very proud of them, so they went on the tree and were saved for the next year, when they joined the collection of things that had to be part of our Chrirstmas tree.
However, it has lovely memories, and I guess I'm neither classy, cool, nor elegant, because to me, that's what Christmas is all about. If I want to see beautifully decorated trees, I'll go to the mall or the garden shop, where they have the '12 bays of Christmas' and each bay contains a differently themed tree.
And a Happy Hogmanay to you too!
