I note on my street only one other house has any holiday lighting. I have a cactus lit up with multi-colored lights. The house a few blocks down the street is gorgeous. And no one else even has a wreath on their door. If you head a street or two over and lots of houses are cheerfully decorated, but not on my street. I really know why this is. It's just an observation. The solar powered lights on my cactus are working quite well.
My dad lives a couple of miles away and his neighborhood is seriously decked out with some very impressive holiday lighting. Don't know why that is, although his neighborhood has more families and my neighborhood is mostly old people.
