I Think the hot weather has stopped people putting up their Christmas Lights as well as vandalism.
I spend 3 to 4 Weeks putting up our lights and have had people comment that nobody is doing it anymore. (Wish my wife would stop buying more Lights)
Still nice to hear kids out the front (Adults too) enjoying looking at the lights.
Interferes with preparing for the GVBR as well.
Would have been fun riding around looking at them.
