    Christmas has been and gone. Next is @tek-monkey and the saga of decent haggis.

    Very true. There's nothing wrong with Stafford's lights.

    Just look at Cannock. The council couldn't be arsed and would have nothing if @WildwoodPaul hadn't stepped in.

    Are there any reliable cost/benefit analyses of the economic effects of the presence of Christmas lights on a local economy?

    I can't be the only one that basically doesn't notice the lights when walking about town? They don't exactly stand out and aren't terribly abundant.

    An utter disgrace. It only goes to show the part-time, in-it-for-themselves nature of our public employees. How dare the council give their employees Boxing Day off! They should have someone watching those circuit breakers 24/7 all through Christmas - you can't let someone's expectation of a family life get in the way of other people's shopping experience...

    There are places where it's worth keeping one eye on the grids.

    Indeed. And dropped ice cubes - the wife got incredibly unlucky and stepped on a rather solid ice cube on the floor a couple of weeks ago while we were about town, put her out of action for a wile. Was almost looking like we'd be having pizza on Christmas Day...

    Tesco's have these two offerings at £2.50 and £3.25, both lamb's lungs.

    Where I am, the population is about 1,300 - I think we might have a bulb each.
