I find this odd since last year it appeared that more people than usual were doing light displays. Even the regulars have none this year.
    Hardly any here as well. Only 2 houses out of 20 are lighted-up on our street! Of course, we are moving - so we have no decorations; two houses have new people just moved in and two houses are empty. Not to mention that the electric rates are astronomical these days!

    I haven't. Actually town near my place has huge display this year.
    When it seems the magic slipped away...
    We find it all again on Christmas Day

    Yes, I've noticed far fewer Christmas light displays as well.
    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
    Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
    Driving his reindeer across the sky.
    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.

    Our street use to have only one or two that decorated for Christmas, but this one retired couple down the street and I go all out for the season. He likes to add something each year and I like to swap mine around for a different look. Anyway, it seems to have affected many of our neighbors and now, not only is the majority of the street lit up, but we seem to have made it on the "Christmas Lights Limo" tour as well.
    I love it!!!
    "Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps, means a little bit more!"
