Should it be a law in every city that Christmas lights have to be taken down right after Christmas?

While I'm generally against More laws, this is one I would vote for!
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/4/06 - 2:19:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, more laws aren't good.

It's illegal here in Columbia (ever see that X-Files episode where the neighbors get killed for having *gasp* a beige house instead of a tan one? Yeah, that's COlumbia!), but I think it's a silly law
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/4/06 - 2:46:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's stupid. They add character to bus journeys and daily life in general.

Jeez, who cares? People need to get over themselves and find some real problems to worry about. Homelessness? Crime? Poverty? Starvation? AIDS? No big deal. But neighbors with Christmas lights still up in March?! Call the authorities!

Exactly! This is just another dumb law that we don't need.

16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/4/06 - 2:53:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
As much as it annoys me, this one is useless.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/4/06 - 3:18:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, that's dumb. Sure, it's annoying to see Christmas lights up in February, but it should remain the choice of the homeowner. It's their house.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 3/4/06 - 3:35:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think there should be one that says that Christmas lights must be down by January 31st or people will be faced with a small fine.

Lots of people around here have their Christmas wreaths and lights up in August, it's nothing uncommon, for sure.

It's lazy and annoying, but other things need focused upon.

16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/5/06 - 3:05:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
Oh yes, I'd vote for this one!
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/12/06 - 6:09:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
Just say that it's for next year's christmas!
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/12/06 - 6:25:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, that's just what we need to do. Waste taxes passing new, incredibly stupid laws.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/12/06 - 6:26:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes! Yesterday I drove past a house that still had all the decorations up!

... and?

Decorations aren't offensive. They are supposed to be pretty and all that. So what's the problem? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And they'll not be there year round most likely, and if they are... so what?

16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 3/12/06 - 6:34:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
Legislation against decoration? I don't think so (although it would make a good protest rally chant).

There's this old folk's home that I pass almost everyday. They put Christmas lights up on Christmas 2004...they haven't come down since.

Take that, you fxcking hick sons of bitches!


*Throws cat at one*

No. It may be annoying some people when neighbors keep their christmas lights up, but it's not hurting anyone!
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/18/06 - 9:55:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
There should be a law against Christmas.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/19/06 - 6:11:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
as long as they don't turn them on i guess it's okay.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/19/06 - 8:13:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, why the hell does it matter? Let people do what they want. damn.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/19/06 - 8:18:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Why does this irritate people? If someone wants to put Christmas lights up, they can put Christmas lights up. Why the hell do you care?
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/19/06 - 8:57:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well... they're not necessarily Christmas lights year-round. New Years lights. Fourth of July lights (er.. noiseless substitute for a fireworks display, obviously).

This is an instance where laziness should be combatted with more laziness.

15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/19/06 - 9:35:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't care if people leave their lights *up* all year, it saves having to put them up again next year. It's the houses that keep turning them on everyday, all year long. There's a house down the street from me, I can see it right now who has their lights turned on! It's June, shut them off!
