Xmas Crap
 
Random Observations:

The Charlie Brown Christmas Special...... the way the Peanuts' gang dances always cracks me up. I actually was in a bar one time listening to a jazz band and they played the Vince Guaraldi composition entitled "Linus and Lucy" -- you know, the classic Peanuts tune... and people started doing the Peanuts dance. It was funny and cool.

Do you know that in Madison, WI people keep their Xmas lights up well into January? Swear to god. I was visiting relatives their in the early 90's and it was January 8 and many people -- and commercial properties --- still had their Christmas lights up.

In Cali, you take yer lights down on January 1. Period.

I don't think that's unique to Madison- I'm from the Chicago area, and there are plenty of people who have their lights up after the new year. I don't think it's a regional tradition or anything- probably just laziness. :D

if my mom had it her way, the christmas lights would stay up all friggen year long.

we tend to keep up our lights past new year's as well.

as far as I knew, it was tradition (at least in Britain.....) to take down your christmas decorations on twelth night - january 6th. Take them down any later and it's bad luck (if you're superstitious!)

So in Britain they come down on Jan 6th.

Yeh we take our lights down on the 6th Jan

I knew a friend's family in high school who kept them up until February. They said it was a Catholic thing. :shifty:

That's what my mom used to do too...or on the 7th, because the 6th is supposed to be Happy Three Kings Day. :der:

A few years ago, I was president of a home owners association. People actually wanted strict rules about taking down Christmas lights. :madspit: to them.

My daughter refers to the Charlie Brown Christmas special as "Ho Ho Ho" I love to watch her dance like the Peanuts characters. :yes:
