    ^^ That's pretty tastefully done compared to a lot of the shit around here. I should go take pictures.

    It's a big waste of electricity, but I'd be lying if I said I don't love a good tacky Christmas display - and the tackier, the better. It speaks to the trash gene in me.

    I think they are fantastic. I plan on setting one up this year you can see from Pluto. Screw the ozone layer.

    I wish there were more light displays here, although that one is slightly overkill. Seems this year there's less than ever. Sign of the times I guess.

    Not so sure about that. I went to an Xmas decco discount warehouse today and it's almost picked clean. It's still early - yes, I know people start putting them up in September - but I wait until the week before Christmas.

    Wow, I've never seen a display quite like the one in the OP.

    I enjoy looking at over-the-top Christmas displays even if it is a ridiculous waste of electricity. I just hope drivers don't drift into another lane while gawking.

    Over-the-top Halloween displays are even more fun for me.

    i love big holiday lights displays when they are tastefully done, but that one in the OP is way too busy for me.

    an example of a house that i think has a lot of lights, but not too many:

    white, black, puerto rican/everybody just a freakin'/good times were rollin'.

    I like Ang's example. Looks magical.

    Grimm's no. 1 pic looks like some kind of Santa explosion, or a cloning experiment gone way wrong.
