Carole..I completely agree with you about the lights. I think we should start a new tradition about keeping lights up for the winter. I'm not necessarily talking "Christmas" lights, just some warm looking lights that take away the cold,dreary winter feel. So glad someone else feels this way. I'm sure there are many others. If one will catch on.

Don't try that in New Oxford. There are too many Scrooge type old farts there what will either yell 'tradition foul' or electric hog'.

I guess everyone has a difference of opinion on that subject. Myself I prefer to make the week or two before and after Christmas seem more special with the lights up only briefly. When you see something for too long it just becomes ordinary.

Lee....I agree about keeping the "Christmas" lights made special only for Christmas....but you can still do some kind of lights where it just makes those cold winter nights look a little warmer.
