Re: Are you ready to decorate for Halloween?

Another surprise - I walked my dog this past Saturday night, and I have yet to see a house in my neighborhood with Christmas lights up. Normally I see at least one house with them the weekend after Halloween.

What would be ideal for energy savings is for warm climates to be on year round standard time and cold climates to be on year round DST. More cooling savings for warm climates and more heating savings for cold climates.
