Outdoor Christmas decorations are one of the best parts of this time of year, and that’s true no matter whether you’re in the tropics or in three feet of snow! Wrap your banisters with evergreens — even if they’re artificial — and you’ll get the holiday spirit going fast; tie a few red bows around them and it’ll already start to look like Christmas, no matter the temperature. Lights, above all, are the best Christmas décor for any climate: string lights everywhere — on bushes, on evergreens, on bare branches. Wrap tree trunks with white light and enjoy the glow! Is your garden your pride and joy? Decorate it: string lights on hanging planters, trim baskets with silver stars, stack a giant pyramid of “gift boxes” surrounded with lights, or put letters spelling “Merry Christmas” along one of your fences.

Deck your front door with Santas, wooden soldiers, or nutcrackers; the combinations of evergreen, light, ribbons or bows, gold or silver ornaments, and a few lighted snowflakes or bells can make your front entrance magical. Attach bright red bows to silver reflecting balls; and don’t forget garages, sheds, or pool houses — a green garland strung with silver ornaments and red bows will brighten them instantly. And, for a truly breathtaking display that tells the true story of Christmas, large Nativity sets can take pride of place in a spacious front or side yard; with the proper background, they can be the finest Christmas decoration of all. Use your imagination — and some of these images — to create your very own Christmas wonderland. Then set out the cookies for Santa!
