I noticed while driving through town tonight that the Christmas lights have been turned on already. I am wondering what prompted this? Don't they usually wait until Thanksgiving to turn them on?
How much does it cost? Is it really necessary to have them on now? What is the purpose of this?
In Wausau they have been considering not even having Christmas lights in town due to the cost.
I can understand the mindset of retailers trying to push Christmas on us earlier each year, but, why the lights?
