The day after Halloween, Christmas commercials started running on TV. So, I'm not overly surprised to see lights going up in the trees the week before Veterans Day…and three weeks before Thanksgiving. This might be the earliest holiday season yet. But, these decorative lights are so pretty, I wouldn't mind if they were up year round.
I must admit I was a bit excited to actually see the lights being strung. Usually, it seems like they magically appear overnight. So, when I encountered this scene on my way home last night, and I happened to have my camera with me, I had to stop. These guys sure were making it look easy climbing through the trees and wrapping the lights. By the way, they had music playing. Thankfully, though, it wasn't Christmas music yet. (That definitely should not start until after Thanksgiving.)
