Let's get started!
In Japan, many people refer to the lights hung as decorations as "illumination". However, I have always know them as "Christmas Lights". They are hung along with all the other decorations in preparation for Christmas. Almost everyone decorates the outside of their houses with Christmas lights, and it becomes a kind of competition as everyone has pride in their decorations.
My father was really into this. He would spend a whole week intricately decorating our house with lights. Every year we would go to the store together and decide what new lights we should by this year.
During December, many times on the way home from somewhere in my family's car, we would drive around looking at everyone's decorations. It is such a fond memory.
There was one house in my neighborhood that really stuck out. They had so many lights that they had to start preparing 3 months in advance. They opened their home until 10 pm and let anyone come inside to visit their house as they had decorated the inside as well.
