Merry Christmas!

For the holiday weekend, I thought I would leave you with a Christmas spectacular.

An elderly man who lives near me goes bat shit crazy with his Christmas decorations each year. He uses hundreds of mechanical dolls, thousands of lights, and numerous other decorations.

His house has become a national attraction, with thousands of visitors each year.

The traffic on his tiny residential street is insane from Thanksgiving until New Years Day. We're talking a nonstop river of schoolbuses, limos, cars, SUVs, and trolleys. All to see his Christmas display.

Needless to say, his neighbors despise him.

It's quite a sight. My crappy homemade video probably doesn't do it justice, but I tried...

Enjoy!



Have a joyful and cozy weekend. I'll see you on Monday!

Charmalade said...

As I was watching this, I didn't know whether this man was insane or inspiring-- and then at 1:37 I was all OH GOD LOOK AT THEIR SOULLESS EYES.

So probably both.

I'm sorry all that traffic is a nuisance to you, but at the same time-- yay for Christmas and the glorious insanity it ensues, right? I hope I can still wish you a merry Christmas, even though I haven't been blogging/at your blog in awhile. Merry Christmas!

Toast with Charmalade

Merry Christmas! thanks for the video, I don`t know weather this is insane or awesome, but it`s definitely is a bit too much for myself:) though we`ve got a couple of similar neighbours in area who`re crazy about Christmas and their houses are decorated that way:)
