Default Christmas Lights...

Tonight I went out with my dog to take pictures of a neighbourhood house that out-shines Chevy Chase in Christmas Vacation, and Tim the Tool Man Taylor on Home Improvement. It is simply unbelievable. Unfortunately, I take pictures the old fashioned way, so by the time I finish the film, get it developed, and figure out how to scan and post them on here, it'll probably be 2004!! But if you can be patient, they'll be well worth the wait!

It is amazing how many people go all out with their lights. I've NEVER put outside lights up. Now that Jackie has her own house...I'm afraid she will have a "Griswald" house. She says we deprived her as a child to the outside lights and she has to make up for that. .

Our restrained neighborhood features, almost exclusively, just window candles. We gotta talk to the "new" (5 years) people on the corner. They did belay some of the more plastic decor this year. Unless they just haven't gotten to it yet.
