People just have no taste.

I love them, too, when they're tasteful.

These are just grotesquely vulgar.

I dig TSO but if that were my neighbor I'd think they would be getting Ex-Lax in their cookies this year. Yeesh, can you imagine the electric bill?

I line the sides of the walk, the large front window, and you can see the two trees through the windows.
That's all, but people seem to feel it all looks welcoming.
If one of those moved in here, the entire neighborhood would keep calling the police.
Noise and crowds every night for over a month? Nice way to make yourself welcome.

There is a family in Canada that has been doing this for years. They set out a donation box for all the passerbys. Tha donations go to the local boys club.

We have a "Tacky Christmas" light tour here in Richmond. My kids love to go see the lights. Tacky, yes, entertaining, definetly!

Oh my, do these people really not have a life? Who can set that up, and put it away every year? and have all that flashing going on right outside, if I were a neighbor, I would be very unhappy indeed (nice language here, please).

I drove my MIL past one of the houses that's always on the tacky lights tour, and is often featured on those shows about crazy Christmas lights. I told her she had to see it, I couldn't describe it. Her comment was that it was the "biggest mess ever dropped upon the Earth." And that was during the day when it wasn't lit up! icon_lol.gif

I'm thankful my mom is NOT alive to have access to all the things that make these light shows possible.

After all, she saw nothing wrong with causing brown-outs at Christmas, spending more on electricity at Christmas than during 100 degree summers for a/c., for putting out enough lights that our airman cousin came home from the nearby air force base to tell us we were the talk of the base and used as a land mark (oh, yea, close to base now -- there's "that" house).

I cringe just imagining what she would have done!

and yet, well done these shows can be great. tho' this ELO and TSO thing takes it frenetically too far! (at least it's not a house size blow-up poodle someone put up in a nearby town)
