In my neighborhood it is definitely time to hang the holiday lights. Several doorways are adorned with orange lights in preparation for Halloween. Other houses have more elaborate displays including blow-ups of pumpkins, friendly ghosts, etc., in the yards as well as lights outlining the roof and doorway. When these lights come down, the Christmas ones will go up.
I rather like seeing these displays. They make a cheerful impression during these days which are growing shorter and darker. What I wouldn’t like is the work of putting them up and taking them down. I’ve noticed some signs on corners advertising companies which will do it for you. Now that’s being enterprising.
