Christmas Lives On

Even though Christmas has been over for two weeks already, it seems as if the Christmas spirit lives on in my neighborhood. When I took the dogs out a little while ago I noticed that many of my neighbors not only still have their outside lights and decorations up but they have them lit. My daughter and I struggled to get outside lights taken down over the weekend in spite of the freezing cold weather. We practically froze our fingers off with this task but I see some of my neighbors didn't bite the bullet. I know our HOA has specific rules for how long outside decorations can be up but I know it's past the time for lighting their lights. Wonder if everyone will get a pass because of the weather or will the HOA enforce the rules. Should be interesting to see how many lights are still lit in the next few days. For me, I'm still enjoying how festive they look

Same here, even though the weather is always warm here. I love seeing the lights! I once left mine up and lit them at night until April. They were just blue lights with not snowmen or lawn ornaments so it wasn't like Christmas after the season was gone. The neighbors enjoyed them, too!

Our next door neighbor leaves her lights on the house all year round. They seem to turn them on when they are having guests - the lights are all white, so I guess that's ok even if it's not Christmas. I did notice one house down the street still has their full on Christmas lights going on there!
