    Seven houses in our development. Maybe folks are turning them on early due to the late Thanksgiving this year? Ours will come on Thanksgiving night...call me old school...

    Thanksgiving night is a great time to let them shine "Old School". ;)

    I haven't noticed any yet!
    I'm Old School, too. I don't know if we'll have lights ON the house this year since hubby is out of state until Dec 2 and well - Michigan weather isn't the best then. But I'll be out the day after Thanksgiving putting my blowmolds out!

    I have a variety of Santas & Snowmen, so I'm thinking of leaving the Snowmen out thru January, since it's always so dark & depressing after the holidays.

    Too much dark still. I leave early on Thursdays so it will still be light on the drive home. I will be putting up our lights this weekend.

    We have a neighbor down the street from us on the other side whose yard, house, and driveway are completely covered with lights and inflatables. He has been working on it since November 1st and everything is lit every night. There is even Christmas music playing (which, I can actually hear in my house if I turn the TV off. I love Christmas but I would hate to be his next door neighbor because I am sure the music is quite loud for them!). We have our outdoor lights complete and they are set on a timer and turn on each night. I saw one other house on my street with outdoor lights on and several others as I was running to the store last night (ironically for one more strand of Christmas lights for my indoor village that we put up last night!) My neighborhood usually does pretty well with people decorating their outside, so I look forward each night to new displays!

    On my journeys today saw several houses preparing. I'll get our lights up tomorrow.

    I went to a friends house last night and I was disappointed by how few houses I saw lit up. Don't get me wrong. I was happy to see the ones that I did see. I just thought there would be more by now.

    I counted 64 houses with outside Christmas lights on while driving home from a church meeting tonight.

    From a high of 69 this year I only counted 19 houses last night with the Christmas spirit still going.
