Ideas for Christmas Yard Decorations

Yard Decorations for Christmas

There are a number of things to consider when thinking of your Christmas yard decorations, and before you even start to make a plan, take into account how much you're able to or want to spend this year.

The reason this is important is once you create a Christmas outdoor decorations plan in your head, you start to take ownership of it, and it's possible to go downhill from there, because if you have big ideas and you find out you can't afford it, it makes the final Christmas outdoor décor a little less than it was, and can disappoint rather than delight you.

Another thing to consider is the extra cost of lights if you want a big light display as part of the decorations so people can enjoy them at nighttime.

If you've lived in your neighborhood or town for awhile, you are more than likely aware of the rules and laws guiding Christmas yard decorations, but you probably want to be sure of them if this is the first year you've really decorated your yard for Christmas in a big way.

Finally, be cautious when putting up your outdoor Christmas display, as a number of people are hurt every year, especially when they're on ladders they aren't used to climbing.

Taking that all in, there is a great and positive side to putting out Christmas yard decorations, and in the end, we just need to enjoy and appreciate them at this favorite time of the year.

Outdoor Christmas Nativity Scenes

As Christmas is a Christian holiday, it wouldn't be Christmas without the inclusion of a nativity scene, and the two photos of nativity Christmas yard decorations below show a real contrast in the types of nativity decorations there are available.

Both of these nativity scenes really work well, and I would enjoy either one of them. The bottom one has more than the nativity scene, but I included it to show a three-dimensional nativity versus how a two-dimensional one would look on top.

Outdoor Winnie the Pooh Yard Inflatable for Christmas

I always like Christmas decorations that come from existing characters we've grown to love through our childhood, and this one of Winnie the Pooh characters is great. Eeyore and Tigger have been two of my favorites throughout the years, and it's really fun to see them as part of Christmas inflatable yard décor.

Eeyore as a reindeer pulling the sleigh is fantastic, although you couldn't really say he is pulling the sleigh, but is surely saying one of his wonderful one-liners he's so famous for. And Winnie the Pooh and Tigger are their usual happy selves.
