You might be tacky if most of the 'lights' in your yard are really just bug zappers.

Hanging Christmas Lights on Brick Homes
You can hang Christmas lights and decorations on brick homes just like your neighbors with wood or non-brick facades. The key to attaching the lights properly is to use the correct light clips and hangers. Brick can make hanging lights difficult, but here are a few tricks:

First and foremost, be sure to use brick clips
o Brick clips are designed to specifically clamp onto bricks of varying sizes
o Brick clips will not damage the mortar
o These clips can hold wreaths or lights equally well
o Make use of standard clips on other hanging surfaces of the house.
o Determine which type of light clip you need for your application
o Use standard and all-in-one clips on shingles, gutters and roofline
o Control the spacing of your lights – a light clip for every bulb or icicle drop is recommended by the professionals

How do you hang lights on brick or do you have any other tricks for hanging lights?

I'm looking to attach lights to stucco. Any ideas? One thought I've had based on advice from other forums was to hot glue a hook to the stucco, which can be heated and removed at the end of the season. Maybe use the hot glue in conjunction with a hook of some kind? So far these brick hooks look pretty good for the task.
