Highly Decorated

A Few Months Too Early For Santa

A Lancashire town has put up its Christmas lights - 127 days before Christmas. Rochdale Council says the lights in Milnrow will be used in celebrations for several faiths, including the Wicca festival Yule celebrated by white witches and pagans on the winter solstice.

FOOTNOTE: Yule be bewildered.

I go crazy when lights are up too early. I think it is perfect when they go up after Thanksgiving. What do you think?

I was in Lancashire last week and it was really dark. I think that they could do with some extra light!

We have lights strung all across the Prom the whole year round - but they save the reindeer and Santa's for December. There is nothing prettier than seeing the lights reflect off the bay at night, it always lifts the heart!
