I just thought it looked cheery and made me πŸ™‚. Everything is so grim, with such short days and lockdown.

This is a first among me LIKE EVER, my parents ( especially my dad ) leave the Christmas decorations up as long as possible, but Christmas decorations up in February just seems wrong at least in my opinion.

Sorry if I offend you

I agree with you, a few years ago, when we were house hunting, one of the reasons we decided against a particular street was due to one of the neighbour still having their Christmas decorations up in late Jan - Reading this, makes it sound snobby.😁

If the lights were Christmas themed I wouldn't have been so positive, but as

they just seem to be lights, they just seem picturesque. If the news story hadn't classed them as Christmas I wouldn't have made the connection.

Quite right. I think this is a great idea. Especially with the snowy weather. It’s so doom and gloom at the moment so why not try and cheer people up if you can x
