How Long is Too Long?
How long should I keep the outside Xmas lights on? January 1st? Epiphany? Go wild and keep 'em on all year? I'm in the Epiphany camp myself. I just don't want to appear like one of those "christmas-all-year" nutjobs. Regardless of when we stop lighting them, Dale hurt his back which means the lights around the eaves won't come down until he can stand somewhat upright without too much pain. I do the ladder work, but I need a little help handing things down. I could probably get the lights off the bushes myself.
I'll take the tree down this weekend. The last day for tree pickup is next Thursday. When I was a kid and we had an artificial tree, I think I remember the tree still being up one time on Valentine's Day!
