we are on a dead end street with my house being on the oppostie end of the cul de sac. there are 2 houses on the other end that have decorated EVERYTHING they can think of... when you look down my street, it gives off a reddish glow, lol. we drive down there every night though cuz my daughter loves the lights.

I am guessing that snow doesn't accumulate in these lawns from the heat thrown from the Christmas lights!

We have a house down the road that we refer to them as the griswald's house everyyear. I think they save up all year just to pay the electric bill.

I know what you mean... There are a few houses like this in our neighborhood (not to this degree, of course). It's kind of strange. I think they're really tacky, I look forward to seeing them all the same...

On the site, did you see the one titled the Strip? Boy, they're right. Las Vegas has nothing on them!! I would not be able to decorate my house with as much enthusiasm as these people have shown. We do however visit the houses in our small town that do. Every year we have to drive by to see what was added.
