I hope they appear on Christmas Eve, if at all.

I bloody *hate* all the early Christmas kerfuffle. Especially the muzak in the stores. Hat's off to the local Rite-Aid, who assured me their mandated 'Xmas Music' was indeed playing - but turned right down due to popular demand. Saves the sanity of the staff as well no doubt.

Flying back from SFO on Nov 8, they had Christmas themed paper plates and napkins on the plane, and Thanksgiving was still three weeks away. I chalk it up to greed.

I'm sorry, to my mind that looks like awful light pollution and a waste of energy, however 'pretty' it might seem at a glance.

However, if powered by these:
http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/gravitylight-lighting-for-developing-countries
then I take my remarks about energy back. Not the light pollution thing though.

Can a man put up Christmas lights in peace?

I would venture a guess that logging 28,617 posts has consumed plenty of energy, both human and electrical.

We in the east coast on North America get less sunlight now.

That sucks. I ride in morning in the light, which I prefer. But when I go home. Fucking shoppers. I like to see my city (Charlotte) do good, but it only benifits a small few.

I am a big football fan(guess the team) and the Panthers are doing great.

"Times" would imply more than one. 8)

I started listening to 24/7 Christmas music on the radio a week ago. I love this season, so the earlier the better. I'll try to ride down Fifth Ave over to the Rockefeller Center tree tonight or tomorrow night.

All that being said, I can do without the distracting lights on MV.

Hmmmm. To say something or not.

Less sunlight in winter isn't East Coast-specific.

And you're in Charlotte? You have far more daylight than folks at higher latitudes.

Charlotte sunrise/sunset for today: 7:16 AM / 5:11 PM
Seattle sunrise/sunset for today: 7:40 AM / 4:19 PM

That said, this time of year is difficult for folks anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere you have seasonal affective disorder (SAD), no doubt. And the holidays often just pile on.
