This lighted outdoor Christmas decoration display in the photo above is amazing to say the least. Nostalgic in nature, it definitely reminds one of a Victorian-style Christmas complete with carolers, street lamps, and candy canes.

Using your outdoor lights and decorations to create a scene or a theme is an excellent way to make a cohesive light display.
