Memo to the neighbors who put up their Christmas lights two weeks ago

Memo to the neighbors who put up their Christmas lights two weeks ago;

Why?

Why so early?

I am a huge fan of Christmas lights and will appropriately "Clarke Griswald-acize" our home right after Thanksgiving.

But you (and you are certainly not alone as I have seen many others around town putting up lights AND Christmas tree’s) seem to have jumped the gun on the holiday.

I have some possible conclusions as to why you have done this so early:

    1. The pages of your calendar stuck together and you think it is actually mid-December and you are really late to put up the lights.
    2. This is your reaction to all the bad news in the world and you have decided to bring some "joy" early.
    3. You have become a member of PETA and to show your support of turkey’s around the globe you are therefore boycotting Thanksgiving this year.

Just wondering…

Signed, your dreary neighbor.
