It's Time

Dear Neighbors,

Today is March 8.  You can take down your Christmas decorations now.

Now, I can imagine what you might say--the lousy weather kept you from getting at them.  I understand that--to a point.  I mean, the neighbors who have the green garland with big red bows wrapped around their porch pillars have had a clean porch for some time now.

For the rest of you:  We've had balmy weather for a little while, and the piles of snow that have plagued us all winter are just about gone.  Please get out to your yard, take down the lights/ornaments/deflated inflatables, and put them away until next year 9 months from now.

Please and thank you.

Your pal,

  1. You know which ones get me the most are the ones that keep their lights on. It's one thing to not want to get out the ladder and take the lights down from the edge of the roof or the big tree in the front yard when there's snow on the ground. But why are you still turning them on? Every day, you go and plug those lights back in (or you have a timer, which is easily unplugged). Just STOP TURNING THEM ON. Leave them dark until the weather clears up. It's not hard. Sheesh.
