No. I don't mind Christmas lights up all year. To me, they are heartwarming. You are assuming they are lazy. Perhaps they have kids who like to have them up all year. I had a friend who left her lights up- her dad was dying and was probably not going to see Christmas and he wanted to see the lights. Once he died, she left them up.
No, it's pretty much laziness. Seriously. Christmastime is for lights. If you are one of those houses that decorates for every holiday then fine, you take down your Christmas lights in January and you put up your St. Patricks Day/ Fourth of July/ Halloween lights when that time of year is upon you. If your kids like the lights put them up in the back yard or inside and enjoy them to your hearts content.
As for the dying story, I'll give you that one, but it's most likely laziness, seeing as how most, if not all, of the year-rounders don't turn them on.... sometimes they don't even turn them on when it IS Christmas.
When you were growing up did you (and I don't mean tujunga gal specifically) see Christmas light on houses in June? Most likely not. You put them up in Nov/Dec and they come down in Jan.
