There's was a bug on the app that kept making every FML have a ton of YDI votes. That might still be the problem, or there could just be a ton of people that think OP deserved it for not knowing the neighbor died.

For all those he wonder why he didn't ask; Maybe he wanted to surprise him? I think it was great that he cared for that lonely old guy. Good way to keep the holiday spirit OP!

I'm sorry, but you don't do ANYTHING to someone else's property without asking them first. One of my neighbors washed another neighbor's car but didn't know something was wrong with the gasketing around the rear driver's side passenger door and they ended up soaking the back seat (and some shopping that was back there). You want to do something nice? That's great, but ASK first!

I imagine OP didn't want to make the man feel incompetent for his age. If OP asked first, he would've made the man feel like he was almost asking for help. This was, of course, only relevant when the man was alive.

You do it all the time, Gc327(and then I don't remember) :p You used to have a picture of a licence plate of a car and you would say things like "Brace yourselves" ;)

33 - I disagree. I think the people that loved and cared about him would be glad to know that his Christmas lights brought enough joy to people that they wanted to carry on his tradition.

It was a great thing you did, and I think it makes it an even more meaningful gesture if he's just passed on, rather than less meaningful. I'm sure he has family and friends who will be missing him this holiday season, and I think it might be a comfort to them that someone thought highly enough of him to take the time to put up the lights the way he would have wanted.

My thoughts exactly. This was still a nice thing. It's a shame the neighbor didn't know he passed, especially as the neighbor clearly cared for the old man. You did a fine thing, no FML here.

81- If OP knew he was dead, then he wouldn't have decorated his house in the first place, and there would be no FML. Your comment is irrelevant to what's being debated.

#48, I disagree, I think this is the kinda thing you don't ask about, because it could have been painful for the old man, to be remembered of the fact that he couldn't put them up this year. Instead, he could now look out of his window and smile gleefully. Well, thats the Christmas movie scenario that I have mind.
