Ok so I pre ordered the sims 3 seasons and got the game yesterday. I was really exited for winter and the lights and decorations, but I couldn't figure out how to put up the holiday house lights! I could put them up on other sims houses, except mine! I tried clicking on my front door as they said I should, but it just said "lock..." or "go home" and that was about it. I was so angry! I tried everything but couldn't figure it out!!!
Are yout trying on a CC house or an EA house? When I first played I was using a CC house and the lights didnt show up as an option for me. I don't know if that happens with every cc house or if something was wrong with the one I was using.

Actually this seems to be a fault on EA's part. I had this same problem and it turns out that houses with "flat and squared" rooftops cannot have holiday lighting. Lol sucks right? I bet if you were to click on a home with a traditional triangular rooftop (yes you can change your neighbor's lights too) you would have the option to hang them.

Make sure you are not inn pause mode. When I clicked on my front door the "Hand Holiday Lights..." button didn't show up and it showed up on my back door. I don't think there is a too early time. It just has to be in the season of winter. I hung mine on Sunday in the game and Thursday is Snowflake Day, or I guess, Christmas.

Welcome to the forums...
You do realize that this is from last year and I am sure that the person who posted this has already figured out how to put the lights up... You can also hang your lights up anytime of the year, it does not need to be winter. The lights will stay up all through the different seasons.

TO the person who keeps writing and chastizing anyone who continues to reply:
There are a lot of us having this issue and, while the OP may have figured it out, we are still looking for answers. If you Google "Sims 3 unable to hang holiday lights", this thread comes up so, if others want to add additional comments, please go about your business and refrain from contributing nothing.
As for me, I'm running a game wihtout CC and can't get the lights on my house. I don't have a flat roof and can get the option for other houses. My Sim moved houses but I used the same front door - a store item - so that might be my problem. I'll try a different door and hopefully that will work.
