    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.

    Not at all. In fact they stay up longer, because she enjoys them. I use to take them down the weekend after New Year's Day, now it is the weekend before the SuperBowl... lol

    Especially when they are the only lights on in the home at night...

    Not sure what the ground is like right now after nearly a week of sub-freezing temps, but I may have to get out there and kind of finish up...

    Less than 2 weeks until you light them, right? When do you usually set up the yard? Right before Thanksgiving?
