Now that February is here, I need to do some serious thinking about whether it’s time to take down the Christmas lights. On the one hand, Christmas is far behind in the rearview mirror (or a long way down the road, depending on your perspective). On the other hand, February is pretty dark and dreary and the lights are really cheerful and they’re LEDs so I’m not wasting a lot of energy. Perhaps it’s worth leaving them up at least until the hours of daylight exceed the hours of darkness.
