This was my answer to the question: Do you have Christmas lights up outside?
From Dera's meme at Casablanca.
I credit my green-milk-on-St.Patrick’s-Day mother for instilling me with a love of all things seasonal and holiday. My collection of holiday decorations (Christmas/Halloween/Easter/Haunkkah/Thanksgiving) is somewhat restrained (4 large plastic bins) considering what it could be.
I am the one hanging out with all the grandmas in places like Jule House of Solvang. In my other life, I’m one of the people on those HGTV Christmas specials with a different themed tree in every room of the house.
I took down our Christmas tree and outside lights on New Year’s Day, as I do every year. I missed them immediately. There are houses on our block that have up the house lights year round. I’ve heard of funny old ladies who keep up a Christmas tree all year too. I don’t believe that this Mrs. Rosenberg will be one of those old ladies, but never say never.
