I am thankful for this outdoor timer for our lights.
Several years ago Ward got this outdoor timer that we plug our Christmas lights into. It turns on automatically at dusk and turns off later at a setting we select. It works wonderfully. Before the timer, we had no routine of turning on and off our Christmas lights except whenever we remembered. Now they turn on and off like clockwork. (Pun intended.) The timer is especially nice when we travel at Christmas because our lights still turn on and off as if we were home.
