* I turn mine on during Thanksgiving weekend * I live in the Chicago area, where a lot of people put up their lights in October, before it gets bitterly cold. Some people turn the lights on as soon as they're up, but the majority of us wait until at least Nov. 15. Traditionalists wait until the day after Thanksgiving. And, even if they're still up after Jan. 7, don't turn them on!

Not sure what you're referring to here ... traditionally, most people turn their Christmas lights on every night from the time they put them up, until the time they take them down.

Because there is a tradition of keeping up holiday decorations until Epiphany, when they are to be taken down until next year.
