Record numbers for online retailers as well.  As the excess housing inventory decreases, at some point, you could see signifcant growth...probably at least a couple of years away.  I suspect with housing prices probably dropping another 5% or so in the next 8-12 months, that will probably be the bottom.  Cheers!

Yes, I do the same thing with Christmas lights, but I think it may say two different things:  Either more confidence, or more people are staying home for the holidays instead of travelling.  Definitely more lights this year than the last three.  Cheers!

You could be right that more people are staying home - in which case, it is a fillip to the local economy.

 

I just came across this article which pegs U.S growth at roughly 3% in Q4 and downplays the Euro zone crisis as not impacting U.S growth in 2012.
