Poll: Call Them "Holiday Lights"?
Commenters at the Fridley Patch Facebook page question the term.
What do you call decorative lights at this time of year?
An article posted over the weekend, Where to Recycle Your Old Holiday Lights in or Near Fridley, drew a comment at the Fridley Patch Facebook page:
Well, Christmas is the biggie. But not everybody who decorates with strings of lights celebrates Christmas.
"Holiday lights" is the phrase that the City of Fridley used in announcing the drop-off box at City Hall for old strings of lights. It's also what the Recycling Association of Minnesota uses to describe its statewide program, Recycle Your Holidays.
