LEDs make it cheap.

I feel for ya if you live close. I had a neighbor since moved on (TFG) that definitely went overboard with lights.

Not too close but I feel for the poor saps that live next door. I gotta give it to the guy though, it really is show. Up close it is really impressive.....as long as you have sunglasses on!

New people moved in three doors down from us about 7 months ago. My wife went to go visit her failing mother over Thanksgiving and while she was away, the neighbor put up all these hideous white framed, white light deer, snowmen, trees...all sorts of shit. I texted my wife and told her Clark Griswold moved into Ray's old house. Guess there's one in every neighborhood.

The neighborhood HOA I used to live in bought a bunch of those lighted reindeers to put out at the subdivision entrances one year. They had to retire them after the neighborhood kids kept rearranging them every night by making the bucks appear to be mounting the does. It became quite scandalous...and hilarious.

We just took my wife’s 19 crates of Christmas decorations down from the attic. 3 trees not including the live one and countless trinkets. We have about 15 crates of outdoor stuff going up on Wednesday.

My wife wanted to go overboard again but I refuse to play along. I could skip the entire season and it wouldn't upset me in the slightest.

We have one near where I used to live. Stopped by the other night. I agree, it might be annoying living next to it.

Clark, what a good family man. Deranged, weird, demented, sure. Gotta take the good with the bad.

"She's a beaut Clark".
"It's the gift that keeps on giving Clark"

Now I can't get these quotes out of my head.
