Outdoor Christmas lights - good or bad?

I used to think that outdoor Christmas lights were wasting electricity and to0 distracting for passing drivers. Is this a load of 'Baa humbug'? We saw these on a house near us on the way home and I have to say that in the darkness on the shortest night of the year, our son thought they were great. Clearly someone has made a real effort to entertain and brighten up the neighbourhood. Given that there weren't really any other lights about, it hadn't turned into oneupmanship. I know energy saving matters and so does community so, for what it is worth, thanks to the household who added some Christmas sparkle on the Winter Solstice for my family.
