We still have the MLK Day lights. And will probably keep them for Groundhog Day lights, and maybe Valentine's Day lights, too. Once DH starts getting home while it's still daylight, we'll take them down. He gets home between 6 and 7, depending on the day, and assuming that he's actually working. Right now the furlough means he has, err, lots of free time to work on his physique.

ThyPeace, not that I mind that part, the significantly reduced household burden because he's doing the chores during the day, and all the delicious suppers I'm getting out of it. Mostly I'm just jealous that I can't join him. We have the benefit of many months' worth of income in an emergency fund, having been through this nonsense before.

If you were in Virginia, they could be Lee-Jackson Day lights.

Lee-Jackson Day

Living in Virginia was a shock to my Northern sensibilities when I first got there in the 1990s. I was like, REALLY? They named a HIGHWAY after Jefferson Davis?!?

ThyPeace, and eventually, it started to seem normal. Which looking back on it, is even weirder.

That actually makes sense in an odd way. Route 1 in Virginia has always been Richmond Highway and the White House of the Confederacy is in Richmond. And it seems that it will revert back to Richmond Highway in the future.

Lee-Jackson Day is near Robert E. Lee and Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson's birthdays. The really awkward thing was when MLK, Jr. was given a Federal Holiday, Virginia combined the holidays. HOW INAPPROPRIATE IS THAT!?!?!?! Now Lee-Jackson Day is the Friday beforehand.

And January 19th is R.E. Lee's birthday. They have free tours at the Custis-Lee Mansion in Arlington Cemetery.
