We have all been driving around and seeing different colored porch lights in neighborhoods. The traditional white and yellow lights are mostly what we see but sometimes you will see other colored lights that pique your interest.

Most that are displayed are due to a cause that the occupants of the home support. In the case of the green bulb, here is what they're supporting and when you may see them light up.

You may see an uptick in green porch lights soon in Texas as we are getting close to Memorial Day which falls on Monday, May 27, 2024. Homeowners will also break out their green lights for Veterans Day as well which falls in November of every year.

So when you see different colored porch lights remember that the homeowner is supporting a cause they believe in and the two we discussed in this story are great causes to get behind.
