Do you enjoy seeing holiday lights and decor up in January? Or do you think they need to go sooner rather than later?

A neighborhood newsletter in Alexandria is the topic of a Washington Post column this morning. The column by the Post's Petula Dvorak quoted from the newsletter:

"I'm going to say it — the thing a lot of us have been thinking but nobody has been willing to say on here. PLEASE try to take down your holiday decor. We find ourselves in mid-January with lights still out and lit every night, blow up Santa on the corner, garlands and wreaths galore, etc. I don’t think we’re the kind of neighborhood that should still have these up when February rolls around. Thank you!!”

What say you Vienna? Is there a deadline on holiday decorations? Do you enjoy seeing lights, trees and wreaths up during January or do you think everything needs to come down shortly after the holidays?
