this is only a very small fraction of the lights they do.


This is totally off the subject... but who are these people? Jimmy Carter went to their wedding. :tongue1:

(I got sidetracked and started looking at other pics.) :sidesplit

EDIT:: NM.. I quit looking at pics and started reading the site.

I enjoy seeing houses where people use their imagination. The more lights the better IMO. I get tired of seeing every house have clear icicle lights, yes its pretty but so ordinary. :holiday07

Hubby and I took the kids and MIL on the annual tour of Christmas lights last night! I actually thought of this thread!LMAO Some of the houses were so lit up! But what made me think of it was when we were getting in the van, hubby told one of the kids to turn off the porch light and the light in the carport, LOL, they weren't on, the Christmas lights were so bright they looked like they were! I am still trying to get a good enough pic to post but, it's hard to do because I have to go across the street to get a shot of the whole yard and every time I get a good shot, several cars go speeding by and ruin it!LOL Anyway, the best thing we saw last night was a "living nativity" at one of the local churches. It was beautiful. The kids said they got goose bumps because it looked so real.

I just saw on the local news that there is a local house that after 5 weeks of decorating, he has lights and decorations everywhere. The lights are set to several Christmas carols and blink with the music. The music is played over loud speakers or you can actually tune it in on your radio while you watch the lights.

Now, that would be really cool to have it tuned on your radio and watch the light show.

This house made it into my newpaper today. I think we'll swing by there before the township decides to shut him down.

That sure is a lot of lights but I like it. My kids would LOVE:hearthrob to see that in real life. We always go drive around purposely looking for the ones that are over the top. :D

This is too funny. This house is actually close to where my parents live and every year we go past it. You should see all the traffic that forms. And if I remember correctly they actually made this street a one way street now because it would get so bad. All the little kids love it.
