    There was a whole show on yesterday on HGTV about "Over The Top" Christmas light displays. Most of these are just one house or two neighbors putting up stuff together, but they showed one neighborhood in Texas where everyone on the block goes over-the-top! I bet the electric company loves them. :bugeye: One guy even had his own low-powered radio station so you could hear the music he had synchronized to the lights without getting out of your car.

    I love Christmas lights, but am very glad I don't live next to anyone like that.

    Ooooh! I just posted another link to the same video. Sorry!

    That is just tooooooo cool!

    When I was living in SoCal, there was a neighborhood where everyone went over the top with the Xmas lights. It was quite a sight to see! Apparently they had a 'tradition' of doing that and everyone in Orange County went to view it. It was pretty impressive but there wasn't anything like the guy who made this video.

    I love it. I wanted to do something like that, but I had to resort to pluging lights in really fast and once I started working and sweating the snow started melting and my hands got wet. During Little Drummer Boy I was just finishing pah rum pum pum pum when I arc'd and set the manger on fire and blew a fuse. damn frankensence went up like napalm and by the time I got the wise men put out they had already called a special meeting of the city council and outlawed incandescent bulbs in my district.
