spongeboob: We typically decorate after Thanksgiving, but what sucks is being in the North East this means hanging lights in the cold

This year we were going to decorate after Halloween and just not light the lights. However I was left unsupervised and found some orange lights, one thing lead to another and I ended up decorating for Thanksgiving


With the ubiquity and cheapness of color changing LED lights I've considered just leaving them up all year and displaying appropriate colors for whatever season.

Traditionally we've always done the day after Thanksgiving, going back to even when I was a kid. Everything comes down the weekend after New Year's.

My outside stuff isn't always on schedule as I pay my lawn guy to do the lights on the house to help him get through the slower winter months.  He usually gets the lights up a week earlier but I don't turn them on right away.

I had a prominent old house in a little hamlet so I festooned it with holiday lights (day after Tgiving).  Now I live on a ten-house dead-end street.  One house puts up a wreath.  Most of us don't bother with anything.  It's glorious.
