We put our orange Halloween lights up at the beginning of October and take them down in late November to put up Christmas lights. Then the Christmas lights come down the next October.

It drives me crazy when people put their lights up too early, like right after Halloween. I think Dec 1 is the earliest they should be lit and stay up till the 6th of January.

On Long Island, lots of people start decorating the day after Thanksgiving. Then most people wait until Little Christmas in January to take down their xmas stuff.
When I was a kid, my parents used to leave xmas shit out until almost Easter. That sucked.

I had the radio on yesterday morning, and they were talking about some guy in the area who is offering his services to do outdoor Christmas decorations/lights for people. Minimum charge is $200, he has charged as much as $2,000 to do it, includes putting up and taking down the lights, and he provides the lights (you're basically renting them). Sounds like a pretty smart entrepreneur to me! But like I have $200 to spend to have someone do my Christmas lights

I've seen plenty of signs offering the Christmas light service - just didn't realize how $$$ it was.

I guess when you must have the brightest, straightest lights on the block.....

Big Grin I love Christmas lights

It's so darn dark when people take their lights down. I think they should stay up until well into January. Otherwise, it can be kinda depressing.
