Christmas Lights

I had heard stories of a neighbourhood house which literally lights up the block every Christmas.  I had to check it out, and was not disappointed. The pictures do not really do justice to the scene:  the owner has added music (Christmas theme, of course, and quite loud) via waterproof speakers and the lights blink in time with the music. Crowds gather every night and there is a traffic jam for blocks around.  The owner saw me setting up my tripod and proudly gave me a personalized tour of the exhibit.  I asked the obvious questions about costs, setup time and neighbourhood reactions.  While he evaded the questions, he did tell me that his wife preferred to stay indoors during the season!! Griswold-esque–perhaps; Tim the Tool Man Taylor-ish-maybe; entertaining–to be sure!!
