I am not Miss Manners. I am not the final arbiter of taste. I am not the ultimate authority on what is right and proper throughout the world --YET.
I do know this. It is the twelfth day of January. It is time to turn off your Christmas lights. Dim that Christmas tree in the window. I know the weather may preclude climbing on the roof and removing those blinking green and purple icicle lights, but you do not have to turn them on.
Heck, my Mother-in-law (may she rest in Peace) kept Christmas lights hung on her carport year round. When those burned out, she hung new ones over the old. But she only turned them on from December 1 through New Years.
I know I am addressing more than just a few still burring the festive Holiday lights. I know of at least six houses within a few miles of my humble abode.
I say enough. It is time to dim the Holiday spirit.
