It has always been a curiosity of mine, when do Christmas lights go up on the outside of a house and when do you take them down?
It's not an easy consideration. After all, if you go to a lot of trouble to put them up, you want to enjoy then for more than a few days.
Not surprisingly, I have made an extensive study of this issue and find that the majority are turned on two weeks before Christmas. The peak is the weekend before Christmas, as some people leave town and the lights go out!
In the South, we have a dilemma. Old time Southerners believe it's bad luck to have the Christmas decorations up on New Year's Day, so many go down the day after Christmas. Yankee transplants like me insist on them burning through the holidays and sometimes beyond!
For me, typically they're up the weekend after Thanksgiving through the day after New Years. We enjoy the decorations so longer is better. For the first time this year they went up the weekend BEFORE Thanksgiving.
Just wondering how this varies throughout the land and beyond. What do you do about decorating? When do yours go up and when do you take them down?
