“To avoid taking down my Christmas lights, I’m making my house into an Italian restaurant”

Do Italian restaurants have too many lights? Patrick McLellan posted a Christmas joke on Twitter on January 7, 2013:

“To avoid taking down my Christmas lights, I’m making my house into an Italian restaurant.”

The one-liner has been included in several quotation collections.
