Do you leave your lights on all night? Is that safe to do or should you unplug them after a certain time?

FWIW, my dad always turns his outdoor lights off when he goes to bed at night.

One of these nights I'll try to sneak by and get a picture to post here. I tried to find one similar on the internet, but I can't figure out what to google to call up photos of this particular kind of effect.

I just wanted to ask for a pic, because I can't quite visualize the effect (now, where have I read a similar sentence a few mins ago? Wink laugh).

Yes, the one I'm talking about is similar, except that the tree isn't that tall, and has more lower branches. And the lights are multi-colored, but with emphasis on the blue/purple side.

It might be a crab apple or azalea tree, so the branches kind of spray out like a firework going off.

I remember first hearing about this effect from my step-mother, who talked about the Tavern on the Green ones as looking really nice.

I think most people turn them off at night, but I've seen people leave them on all night.

If you want, you can find a timer that you can plug your lights into, and it will automatcially turn them on and off at the times you program into it.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going shopping tomorrow, lights and timer. We haven't decided  when we'll get the trees this year. Sinterklaas (=the original Santa Claus) still has to come and bring chocolates and lots of other goodies (that's on December 6th) and it's traditional to wait untill after.
