Oh Wow Jeff: I am back in the Christmas spirit after reading your post. Good for you in keeping the Christmas tree up. Most everyones decorations are down in Florida. There is one house that is still loaded with lights, sorta reminds me of National Lampoons House...As we drove by it tonight, I said to my husband, "If I went to that work in putting up all those lights, you better believe I would leave them up for a while too." We pass this house at least twice a week and it always gives me a warm and Christmassy feeling.
