Put lights up on the tree in my front yard--nothing fancy, just some green lights. I always liked Christmas trees and think trees look nicer than the eves of houses when it comes to holiday decorations. I bought some new lights as my old ones had frayed wiring and a lot of broken bulbs. It seemed like it was best to throw them out and start over.
I also sent out Christmas cards today. Dang, I'm efficient. I don't send out a lot of cards anymore. I used to get these really neat cards that were postcards--no envelope required and the postage was less. I guess the concept did not catch on, as I cannot find them anymore.
