festival of lights:or is it
December 9, 2008 12:28pm CST
Hello all! Well, this is not about a literal Festival of Lights. It is just that the Christmas season brings out the cheer in most people, including business establishments, and they usually put up Christmas lights on different colors and formations to light up their business spaces. My hubby went around and clicked on most interesting displays, but we haven't gotten to the more posh residential areas. For now, I will share some photos with you. But we noticed that there are not too many stores now who put up Christmas lights, as compared to years past. Why do you think so? Please share your answer. A lot of businesses didn't put up Christmas lights display this year because: a. Prices of Christmas lights have gone up - 0 - b. Even if they can afford the lights, electricity rates have gone up - 0 - c. For austerity measures - 0 - d. Others - 0 - Take care all and God bless you! Merry Christmas!

Considering how hard this past year has been on small businesses I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't put up lights because they're trying to keep their electric bill down. My small town has cut back on some of the town's lights this year for that very reason but they're not cutting out all of them.
