Title: Holiday Lights (01/11/12)
Description: Should lights and decorations from the winter holidays come down right after the holiday is over? Or should we let them stay just a little bit longer?

I think no because if somebody walks by your house they would say it's beautiful.

I think you should take them down around Dec 30, 31. Because we have alot of decorations. Decorations are pretty and they make your house look prettier. They make your house stand out like the Manashes.



It takes alot of work if you do it around your house so it makes sense to do it later cause instead of doing all that work you can chill and just play with your gifts from Christmas.

I think you should keep them up till winter is over. So people can see them if thay haven't seen them. I also think you should keep them up because thay are colorful. They can make your home more beautiful. That's why I think you should keep them up longer.

I think we should keep our decorations up untill the end of Winter. Why? Because Winter isn't done yet. If you leave them up it will make summer colorful.

I think we have to take them down because it will waste power. And I think we should leave them up till the end of winter. When we take them down, it will be in about five weeks!

I think we should keep them up until winter. Because when it turns to spring it will not be the holiday season anymore. But it will be cute in spring. I think that they should be taken down on the first day of spring, maybe a little longer. But I already took them down and I took my tree down which means I'm not that happy.

Should we keep the decorations up? I think no, because you have to pay more money for your electricity, and people are too lazy to take them down.

I think Christmas lights should stay up because...

It would put more color in the neighborhood and when people walk/drive they might like them.



And people would get more Christmas spirit.

How long should the Christmas decorations be still up? I think that they should be up three more days becase it's the last holiday of the month and the year. But it will take a lot of electricity, but you don't have to turn on the lights so you don't lose

electricity.



I like the Christmas decorations because it makes it pretty. I really like the Christmas decorations.

Why and why not to take your Christmas lights down.

I think the holidays are not over. So that is why I think that it is good to keep your Christmas lights up.

In our class, we put up lights for the holiday. Our class voted if the lights should come down or stay up. I voted they should stay up, but then I changed my mind. I think they should go down because if they stay up, it will use up more electricity and it is not good to use a lot of electricity. That is why I want the lights to come down.

I think the lights should stay up until winter is over because it reminds us it's still winter and they give the classroom more color.



Other people want the lights to come down early, but I really don't agree with them.

So I'm thinking about well let me just start telling you right know.



You dont have to take your hoilday lights down right after the hoilday, they make your house more colorful and, they also look good looking on lots of things. I think they look best on the side of your house or in your house.



But really I mean you don't have to take them down right after the hoilday. I wouldn't.

I think Christmas lights should stay up. I think they should stay up because it would put more spirit into the world. It would also make summer and spring more colorful. By the way this story is 1 paragraph long.
