A reader asks:
“Great blog… Any idea why the Christmas lights are still up on the light poles? I’m a Catholic and love Christmas but it is almost March. I guess you can make a case to leave up the beach theme lights, but there are Christmas trees and candy cane lights in the east end. Long Beach is like that lazy neighbor who leaves their lights up all year. Not a good look….
Facebook group Project 11561 just brought this up the other day with the same idea: maybe leave the beach theme lights up, but xmas lights really need to be put away. I’m tired of looking at snowflakes when all I want is spring! I actually kinda like the idea of the nautical lights being up all year round. Is that crazy?
