Christmas lights are just starting to light up neighborhoods throughout Texoma.
But as they brighten up homes and buildings they may also add a jolt to your electricity bill.
Officials at TXU Energy say there are a lot of variables that come into play,
but when it comes to lighting up for the holidays most Texomans don't care what the cost is to bring in some holiday cheer.
They glow and sparkle in the night.
Some even express warm wishes.
"It just makes everything look better just makes it a happier time I guess," said Belva Faught, an Iowa Park resident.
Happier, and brighter. Even if that means paying more on your electric bill.
That's never stopped me from putting them up even though it's twenty extra dollars a month most of the time," said Bob Murnahan, from Olney.
"I really haven't noticed the difference, of course my husband pays the bill but we are going to use it anyway," said Faught.
TXU Energy officials say just how much your energy bill will go up varies by what types of lights you use, how many and the economy.
But when it comes to Christmas time it doesn't seem like saving energy by using things like LED lights is what consumers are concentrating on.
"I'm trying to get the old fashioned kinds because they put out more light and they last longer," said Murnahan.
Because when it comes to spreading holiday cheer the results are priceless.
TXU Energy officials say that this year you may see even higher electricity bills for the month of December.
Because of the unseasonably warm temperatures people may still be using their air conditioning.
And adding those energy costs with your Christmas lights will add for an even greater energy use.
