I would tend to agree with you, Wendy. If Christmas Day was the first night that baby Jesus spent on earth.
( I am not a Christian, I have no religious belief whatsoever, but I am just commenting that I think that is the way most Christians would go regarding days/nights)

That was my thinking. So the switch off should be this coming weekend.

I usually put my decorations up a week before Christmas, and take them down a week after, so mine came down yesterday.
I know I'm in my own little world, but it's OK... they know me here. :)

Does that mean your house is undecorated at Christmas or do you delegate the job? :extrawink:

Sensible attitude! My own view is that I have nothing against others decorating at Xmas, it's just that I don't see the point if there are no kids in the house. It was always done with them in mind......

Nice one, Kev. Is it the Nordic equivalent of Alexa, waiting for your next command?

I see that Xmas lights and trees have started disappearing from the Town Centre, mainly Town Square at the moment.

I've only now registered the `2013' in the title of this topic. Perhaps we need a 2020 version next Christmas? :smile:

One thing I forgot to mention. Can you remember me noting that what seemed to be a helium balloon covered with flashing LEDs was caught in the branches of a tree on the Green opposite Montrose Terrace? It's still there flashing even though all the other lights are off. I wonder how long the battery will last? Could it be solar powered? I shall keep an eye on it!

It's a credit to whoever made it! I had a look on the web for them and they usually quote a battery life of about two days. This one has smashed that barrier!

Still lit this morning.

The Balloon is still lit and I see there are others in the same trees but they have gone out. Must be about a dozen of them! Council or private enterprise?

They were put there by the town council, they're not balloons...
