My sister-in-law in Alaska tells me that Alaskans where she's lived (apart from Juneau where they are now) put up their lights as early as October and leave them up into March. Helps things be cheerful in the months of few daylight hours.

We didn't decorate outdoors this year, so don't have to worry about that, but we set up the tree rather late and aren't quite done enjoying the lights, so the decorations are still up inside. Also, I picked several spots to decorate for winter sans holiday theme, so I could leave that stuff out until late Feb. or whenever I get tired of it, whichever comes first.
