Nothing says ‘lazy’ like leaving your Christmas lights up all year round.

Does it bother you when people leave their Christmas light up when it is not Christmas time?

It infuriates me. Not only does it waste electricity, but it ruins the actual atmosphere for Christmas the following year, because the lights are no longer special or festive. I also think it makes the area look a bit common and trashy.
If they had them on all year that would bug me, but if they just don't take them down I don't care. There are worse things people can have in their front yard than xmas lights.

There are, but even when they're switched off it annoys me.
No, it doesn't. I don't really see it as my business.
Nope, it doesn't bother me in the slightest. It makes me giggle and make jokes about how they're saving time next year.
This actually drives me bonkers, although it shouldn't. Businesses in my area leave theirs up all year but only turn them on at Christmas. To me, they are a part of being celebrating the season, but when you are not using them, having them up is an eyesore. I live in a town that is dependent on tourist dollars, it only makes sense to me to make the town look as good as possible, they should be taken down off-season.
Agreed.

This drives me crazy!
It is being extremely lazy, and who wants to look at them, in Jan or Feb or even in July! one house did around the other side of town.
It really does take away from Christmas, I know that.
Agreed.

Yes I hate it.
Never seen a place with XMAS lights on, or even, still in place, for a whole year!

If I did, it would annoy the c@&$ out of me as it would show, they're lazy, dumb & stupid. And if a business, I wouldn't go in & spend my hard-earned with them!
I certainly does annoy me, & it’s such a waste of electricity. I think people should only have their lights on, for the month of Dec! But having said that, it’s 12 days after Christmas that the decorations are supposed to come down, so perhaps up to the date! I don’t mind if they stay up, & are turned off.
