    Dear HRM:

    Christmas was over a month ago. PLEASE take down your christmas lights, santa's, Christmas cardboard cut-outs, etc.

    It's tacky. Get off your lazy arses and take your lights off. Heck, leave em outside if you have to, but just don't turn them on.

    That is all.

    I agree with not turning them on if they are still up, but hey ; if you'd like to be outside on a day like today, which is what MOST of the weather has been like since the holidays; trying to balance a ladder on ice/snow, chipping decorations out of ice; be my guest.

    This is one of the reasons I don't put decorations outside. Its not worth falling off a ladder or the roof over :)

    I had to tell a resident on the weekend to take his LIVE (/dead) christmas tree out of his room since its a freaking fire hazard. My god.

    From a Google reference:

    Use Your Artificial Tree Year-Round
    No need to put your tree away after the Christmas season! Here are some ideas for year-round use of your artificial tree. Use your imagination and create.

    Valentine's Tree: Red heart-shaped lights (or miniature red or white lights) along with heart garland, silk roses, baby's breath, heart-shaped ornaments, cherubs, red and white ribbon.

    St. Patrick's Tree: Green shamrock garland or ribbon, shamrock ornaments, shamrock-shaped lights (or green miniature lights), leprechauns, Irish ornaments.

    Easter Tree: Eggs of course! Also egg-shaped lights in pastel colors (or pastel miniature lights), baby "chick" feathered birds, nests, bunnies, egg-shaped ornaments, Fill clear plastic egg containers with jelly beans for ornaments.

    Patriotic Tree (for Memorial Day or 4th of July): Stars and stripes garland, twinkle star lights (or miniature red, white or blue lights), star-shaped ornaments, red-white-and-blue ornaments, bows and flags.

    Halloween Tree: Pumpkin lights, cats, brooms, orange and black ribbons, orange and black ornaments, clear plastic ornaments filled with candy corn.

    Harvest/Thanksgiving Tree: Berry picks, gold lights, fall leaves, sheaves of wheat, ornaments made of straw, assorted fruit and nut ornaments.

    Collectibles Tree: Showcase your favorite collectibles by decorating your tree with collectibles and coordinating trims.

    Nature Tree: Decorate with birds, nests, raffia and flowers. Our natural looking trees are an excellent addition to a log home, a rustic great room, den or patio.
