In the town where I used to live and the neighboring areas they used to put the town lights up in Nov. and they stayed up until the end of Jan. But, over the years they've gotten lazy so they now leave them up all year long! They don't light them until Thanksgiving though but, it will be 90 degrees in July and you can drive through the town, look up and see a Rudolph light looking down at you on a pole!
