    Earlier actually. I put up scads of blue and clear lights for the Hanukkah season. LETTING MY LIGHT SHINE! Responsibly of course, with timers and use of solar LED as well.

    Not enough choices...
    I don't put Christmas anything.
    Being Jewish, it mean nothing to me...

    Maybe there wasn't a choice because, as you state, the question doesn't apply to you?!

    Truthfully, this year we're not putting them up. We have to pinch pennies and don't need to spend the extra electric for the lights. Besides, I am very scroogy this year, depressed and NOT even excited about Christmas, it's usually my favorite holiday. Oh well :)

    They were such a pain in the arse to get them up, then one string went out, then they All went out, then we took them all back down and went and bought new ones and put them up all over again, and vowed to leave them up all year, since they're guaranteed to be weatherproof, with smaller recessed bulbs...we'll see...They are fun to have up in the summer for barbeques--festive.
