Holiday decorations

I drove through Lexington (where the decorations were beautiful, up to and including wreaths on every telephone pole) and Arlington from the town line through the center and never saw any holiday decorations that had been erected by the town.  In the center there were trees with bulbs visible but never lit.  What gives?  Have the grinches stolen our decorations?

Jane Lexington's Budget is not significantly bigger than ours. They choose not to spend their money foolishly. Face the Facts Arlington has turned to Little Cambridge, where is not Politically correct to talk about Christmas. Arlington Sucks

Put it on a town meeting warrant article and after it gets talked about at length, just maybe they can get a few more strands. That is...after they do a study and form a committee. What happened to holiday spirit? Whatever holiday you celebrate.

Perhaps if we reduced the bloated town committee employees, residents could use the $ from lowered taxes to take care of their own neighborhood spirit of choice!

Many years ago the Town of Arlington used to do it up really nice. Row after row of elaborate decorations that spanned across Mass Ave and criss-crossed diagonally at major intersections. It used to be a fun experience traveling through the Heights around this time of the year.

The Lexington budget for 2014 is $173.6M. Arlington's 2014 budget is $132M. So, $40M more and 10,000 fewer residents? I'd say that's significant.
