Oh man. Been there.

It's still cold out. What the fark are you taking those things down for?

My neighbor turned off his Christmas lights *last week.* I was thinking about getting some of the neighbors and going caroling in front of their house.

Heh, my white trash neighbor still has Halloween stuff outside his house - plastic raven, severed lower leg, "House of Horror" sign, etc.

/I think the leg's plastic, won't go there to check it.

My Christmas lights never come down.  They get plugged in from Thanksgiving evening to the morning of Boxing Day.

Guy down the street leaves 'em on nightly till Easter.

I've seen people leave them up all year.

So I killed them in their sleep.

The old superstition is that if you didn't take down your holiday decorations by Candlemas (February 2nd), you'd have a death in the family later in the year.

Lady Beryl Ersatz-Wendigo: February 2nd

That seems an okay time for it. Ours don't go up until Christmas Eve, and don't get turned on until Christmas Day. You can think of it like Santa bringing them or like it's a celebration of something that began on Christmas Day, depending on your religiousness.

A neighbor across the street still has their outside Christmas lights up.

I still see a few houses in my neighborhood with lights on their bushes. The purple lights I understand, those were to celebrate the Ravens playoffs/Super Bowl. The white or multi-lights...ehhh.

My girlfriend's neighbor still has Xmas ornaments in the front yard. I was thinking of putting up a Craig's List ad. "Free Xmas ornaments. If you can lift it, you can haul it away".

Ours are still up.

Took the wreath next to the front door down last week. The red bell that lights up (haven't turned it on since January 6th or so) is still up. Took the tree down and cut it up last Tuesday.

We start late and continue it through all the New Year celebrations.

Neighbor a block away had his Christmas strings of lights burning brightly last night.

Miracle on 34th Street was released in May.

Our single outdoor decoration--a wreath on the front door--was taken down in January, just after 12th night.

Our tree and indoor decorations, well, they're still up. I've simply been too busy to take them down!

My tree is still up - but it's a two foot fakey from Walmart. COME AT ME BRO
