One of the houses in my neighborhood recently sold, and a few months ago, a very nice couple with a child that appears to be just older than my son moved in.
I admit though -- they have scared me off a little.
Yesterday, I drove by their house only to be shocked to see that they put their Christmas icicle lights up last weekend.
When I see lights up this time of year I normally chuckle a little thinking, "At least we got ours down before them!"

But knowing that these lights have just now gone up?
It's wrong. Just wrong.
