There is this house in my hometown. I’m sure your hometown has one like it. It’s that house that rivals the Griswold home in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. This house is decked out with more lights than you can shake a stick at — so many that it makes the local newspaper every year and people drive all over town to get a glimpse of it. The first year I went, they had a light-up nativity scene, with the Baby Jesus strapped to the grille on their RV. That’s when I knew these people were serious.
We drove by last night to take another look and the owner happened to be out and about. He told us that he estimates there are about 60,000 individual lights that make up his display — 14,000 on the tree alone. He’s been putting up the lights for 24 years. I think that’s kind of cool.
I thought that this year, you all deserved a taste of the magnificence that is the Crazy Christmas House. So feast your eyes, dear readers — and get a load of this! xoxo
