Mike & Liza's Marriage Ref: Let There Be Christmas Light




It’s a Marriage Ref first – both parties wrote to us and agreed to accept your call as the new rule in their home.  We can’t wait to find out what you decide.


Dear Mike & Liza,
It’s time for our annual Christmas Light Fight.  This year my husband and I agreed that we will accept your decision and never bring this up again.
I say we should put up the Christmas lights now, before it snows, while the weather is still relatively nice.
He says it’s never ok to put up the lights before Thanksgiving.  I told him we don’t have to turn the lights on until after Thanksgiving, but he stubbornly refuses to even put them on the house.
Whatever you decide will be the rule for the rest of our marriage.  We’re both keeping our fingers crossed.
Anna, Idaho Falls


Dear Mike & Liza,
My wife Anna asked if I would let you decide when our Christmas lights should go up.  She thinks we should put them up now before there is a bunch of snow.  I say there is no reason the lights should be on the house before Thanksgiving, and after January 2nd.  Even if we don’t turn the lights on, people will see them on our house and think I’m one of those guys that never takes the lights down.  She doesn’t understand the shame that comes with being “one of those guys.”
I did agree to live with your ruling, so Mike, I hope you’re picking up what I’m putting down.  Lunch is on me buddy!
Brad, Idaho Falls
