    We have about 4-5 houses with Christmas lights still on. So sad :(

    Most of my neighborhood has taken them down also. My wife and I discussed when to do ours last night and we decided that Sunday I'll take down the outside with the help of my youngest daughter and Monday she and all the kids will do the inside. For us that's about a week or two earlier than usual but our schedules only get busier as the month goes on so we have no choice. :(

    I counted 7 houses and one business with Christmas lights still on last night.
    And the town I live in as well as the town I work in still have their Christmas decorations up and on.

    The drive in and home from work still finds a handful of houses decorated and lit up.

    Wow! That's a lot.
    I'll do a count on my home from church tomorrow. But I'm not expecting many.

    Yes. I was really (pleasantly) surprised to see so many.

    I hope you see a lot on your ride.

    Tonight I was coming back from someplace new. I saw A LOT of houses (at least a couple dozen) with their lights on. It was FANTASTIC.

    ZERO. A big fat goose egg. Nobody has lights on anymore.
    But I won the battle of the block. I was the last one with Christmas lights on this year. That's 47 houses with about 15 of them having Christmas lights.

    There is still one house on my street that has their Christmas lights. Every morning when I walk my dogs, I am so grateful.

    I saw two tonight in the space of about a mile. There may be more in the area. I haven't taken mine down yet and at any moment, I'm apt to turn them on just to keep the neighbors guessing. LOL!

    Still have one on my block! Not looking forward when the lights come down.....

    Also, the city where I work still has its holiday display up, including a life size crèche. But...... they’ve stopped turning on the Christmas lights. It’s now dark when I drive into the office.
