To get noticied in this city during the holidays, either you've got to have a lot of lights or you've got to keep them up until it's time to swap them out with Easter baskets.
On that note, hats off to Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede. The Christmas tree goes up BEFORE Halloween, and doesn't come down until February. And all that time, Central Floridians get the added bonus of Dolly's "Hey y'all, c'mon down!" commercials that run for 12 weeks, non-stop. Admittedly, they are a bit of a guilty pleasure, in a "Head On - apply directly to the forehead" kind of way.
