Just another form of human expression. I think it's pretty cool.

I like em, but I'm not a big fan of the inflatables. But I think that houses should have some sort of lights all year round.

Or maybe all three were up at the same time so all they had to do was switch which string of lights was plugged in. Have "ditto" up earlier, and switch it up later in the night.

Personaly, I'm not too keen on the whole 'let's completely cover our house in lights' thing, but some of the things people do with lights can be entertaining.

I've never seen them, I just sort of believe that they're out there looking pretty.

There was a house in my neighbourhood that always had tons of christmas lights. Last year the husband was arrested for murdering his wife. Overcompensating happiness.

I suppose it's still a very European and American thing. Christmas lights actualy originated in the upper-class homes in 18th-century Germany, where trees were decorated with candles. The tradition of the illuminated Christmas tree then became established in the United Kingdom during Queen Victoria's reign, brought to the UK by her husband Prince Albert who was German and then spread to North America and Australia via emigration.

The first known electrically illuminated Christmas tree was the creation of Edward H. Johnson, an associate of inventor Thomas Edison, in America, and the tradition of extending this form of tree decoration to covering entire houses in Christmas lights seems to have started in America where, in San Diego in 1904 and Appleton, WI in 1909, and New York City in 1912 were the first recorded instances of the use of Christmas lights outside, and the tradition has grown and spread to other countries from there.

He'd probably seen the electricity bill.

There's one on my way to work that plays very loud xmas music ALL NIGHT. I ride past it at 1030pm, and again at 7am. It's always on. **** those people. I mean lights are fine, as long as they don't outshine the sun and annoy neighbors, but music? You can just close your curtains to sounds.

I quite like them. It's something a bit different and some of the ones i've seen do it for charity and have a little charity bucket out the front.

Bit of fun really.

It took you almost 5 years to realise it ?
