Honestly, who’s business is it? It takes a lot of work and many days to set up Christmas lights and decorations, inside and outside. All that work, i want to enjoy them more then 26 days. I take mine down the 27th. I am noticing that now a days people complain about others and stick there nose into others business. Also, people try so hard to push their opinion onto others. Let’s let people do as they wish.
In this busy world, it is necessary to get started early. We all get busier as Christmas draws nearer. However, it's not necessary to turn all the lights on outside until maybe December 1. :)
