On the 17th Day of Christmas


There are still non-trivial numbers of people who haven't taken their Christmas decorations down. Fortunately, the practice seems to be limited to houses with tasteful exterior lights rather than the tacky extravaganzas that affect some entire streets, but I'd have thought by now it was time to concede that the festive season is over.

OK, so Clacton-on-Sea keeps its decorations up the entire year, but at least it has the decency not to turn them on except when Christmas is approaching (generally around the end of September).
