Does anybody else do this?
When I drive home from work at night I count the houses that still have there Christmas lights on. Last night I counted 34 houses (including mine) that still had there lights on and that was after 10pm, I also counted 6 trees lit up in windows.
It just warms me up when I see all those up, and it is only a 12 mile trip.

I dont count them but I love to see them still up and on! Our house still has ours on.

34 houses? That's great! I love seeing them still lit up too but I never counted them. I shall do that next time I am out.

Oh, I love doing that! The family that lives behind me keep Christmas lights strung above their back porch and they keep them on until the end of January. Whenever I sit at my computer and look out of my window I see them and it always makes me smile! Christmas lights always make a house look so happy!:)

What a great idea...! I've been counting them on the street where we live. We're down to ONE this evening. I'm actually glad it's not our home, it's the house across the street from ours -- perfect viewing for us...! :merry:

I don't actually count them, but I always look for them. It makes me feel good to see that some people actually "get it" that the Christmas season doesn't end December 25th!

Last night when I drove home I only saw one house with lights still up. I get off of work at 9:00 PM so it is plenty dark.

There are still 3 apartments on my street that turn their lights on every night. We were supposed to have them down last weekend according to the rules for the apartment complex but they never enforce that rule.
