Lights - Just Me?

Had some odd looks this morning.

Plenty of cyclists in hi-vis (alongside the ones who who ride apparently in a "magic bubble" - in the peeing rain in jeans and don't seem to have a drop of rain hit them) but I was the only one with any lights.

At least - I think it was my lights that got me odd looks.

Is it some kind of strange faux pas to ride in the rain with lights on, using the logic that most of the cars are lit up so drivers subconsciously look for lights rather than shapes?

Not me, actually. My lights come off in April and go on in September/October but I probably should have a pair of small ones fitted for such an occasion.

If it is raining like today, I always put my lights on, if it only makes a small difference then that is enough justification.

I had my lights with me, but didnt use them. It was quite a bright morning (although overcast).

Most motorists didnt have their lights on either.
