“I like Christmas very much and enjoy the lights. What is appropriate for putting up the lights is up to the person. For me, I think lights should be put up after Thanksgiving and taken down after New Years. Have a Very Merry Christmas.”

“Christmas is my most favorite holiday, however I can’t stand all of the Christmas stuff in stores at the day after Halloween! I love the lights on houses, but they would feel so much more special a couple weeks before Christmas. No humbugs here, but it certainly feels less special the longer they are up!”

“Personally, I don’t think that anyone should start decorating for the Christmas season until the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Anything earlier is way too early. It’s ridiculous seeing reindeer and Christmas lights in the beginning of November.”
