When I was a kid, my parents would put lights up outside, and that was about it. No lawn or roof decorations or anything. Advocate reporter Erin Pradia is working on a story for Wednesday's paper about some of the most decorated homes in the area.
Here is what people out on the streets typically decorate:
"We've got to see how much money we have. Last year, I had a Charlie Brown Christmas tree."
Dorothy Young, Victoria, Whataburger
"My wife does it. I but it and she puts it up."
Mike Karalis, Houston, lights construction
"I like to see them tastefully done. Not a mishmash of just everything."
Stephanie Nalls, Victoria, freelance writer
"When my kids were younger we did. My wife now decorates the inside, not the outside."
Alex Herrera, San Antonio, H-E-B truck driver
