Holiday holdouts or, Christmas time is still here

It's the second week of March, spring is near, and yet it's not that hard to find holiday decorations.

Echo Street and Middletown Road, Derry Township

Don’t blame the messenger, but we’re nearly halfway to the 2015 holiday season.

I know it seems like you just took the tree to the curb, put Rudolph back in his box, and turned off the outdoor lights for the final time. But in a little more than six months, the holidays will make a triumphant return to a retailer near you.

That is if the holidays truly ever leave, because they hadn’t as of the week of March 9 when I took the accompanying photos.

Surely, the wickedly cold February had something to do with it. Through Valentine’s Day at my house, we continued to illuminate a tree out back. It provided a little spark to get us through the winter doldrums.

But it really would be nice to focus on spring and summer and take a break from the holiday hubbub. That said, if you’re going to leave Santa up in the warm weather, please put him in a pair of shorts and a Hawaiian shirt.
