That red light in that church is just SCARY!!!!!
I think it's HILARIOUS, but if you can't live with it, you can't. Any chance he has some spare green bulbs and could alternate? Maybe the red and green together would seem more Christmas-y than the red on its own...
For the love of all things good and holy, please do not use green!!! When I was a kid, there was a green house out the road from us and the people that lived there decorated their house with GREEN Christmas lights. ALL GREEN. The place looked like a kryptonite mine. The radioactive glow could be seen all the way to my house (and we did not live close by at all!) and it was just scary looking. I still remember that horrible glow!!!
As for red... Mom used to put candles with red bulbs in all our windows at Christmas. This was also about the time The Amityville Horror came out. I couldn't walk into a room that was lit solely with a red bulb in a Christmas candle.
I had a very traumatic childhood, apparently.
You kill me. I am choking on coffee, you had me laughing that hard. I think my husband warped me last night or something, because I find your story incredibly hilarious.
I was terrified of that church with the red glow last night...but then I had to spend some time with it with the lights off to take the pictures...and now I'm strangely used to it.
As for the green lights, I see your point. My husband decided to be EXTRA creative, and he put a green bulb in the entry way light outside the front door. The rear flood light next to the back door he changed to red. Our apartment backs up to the freeway. There's no privacy fence or anything....just trees. They are now bare, and the cars driving on the freeway can see our back yard. He made our house look like a....storefront in the red light district.
I hope the cars go too fast to see anything. He is completely besotted with his own creativity. I'm just....well, I can't really say. If this is his way of blowing off steam, well, I guess it could be worse.
But that darn Christmas village he designed looks like the neighborhood from Poltergeist.
