Ever since 1999 I have covered the family house from top to toe in christmas lights. Just seeing the little kids faces when they see the lights just makes it even more worth while We even get the local rest home and hospital bus coming to look at the lights. Every year our display just gets bigger and bigger. I'm glad that I don't pay the power bill, cause I would hate to know what the power bill is

There is a house abou 1km down the road that won the best decorated house in NZ. People stop in the middle of the main road just to have a look, it is an attraction in itself. And guess what, the cops stop too have a look as well instead of telling people to stop blocking the road !!!

There is a neighborhood in Arlington, TX that goes all out each year to make a dazzling display of lights. Every house is lit up in a certain theme. People drive from all over to go through the streets of this subdivision. Some of the people even give out popcorn and drinks to the "tourists".

I think I might know this neighborhood in Arlington. I used to date a guy whose dad was an AA pilot and they lived in a neighborhood that was sooooooo decorated with the most fantastic lights ever!!!! Tour buses used to come thru this place it was so impressive. I remember one of the houses had a rather large AA 727 mounted ontop the roof pulling santas sleigh!!! Oooooh how I loved that house!

Some houses here have had the lights up for about 2 Weeks now. The local paper has a competition to see which house is the best. It always seems to be those on benefits who have the most lights, and more bulbs than Las Vegas on their house. I'd love to know how they can afford the bulbs, nevermind the electricity bills.
