Tis the season....

... for truly hideous decorations.

As promised....

Contestant #1: "and there was Santa hung by the Chimney with care" I suppose this is one way to keep Santa away from your house.

Contestant #2: Now in this house, the Squirrels are the ones that get into the decorating spirit.

Contestant #3: The attack of the Christmas decorations. This house was apparently under siege by it's Christmas toy/decorations. I went back during the day and counted 74 different lighted characters, plus a projector with different holiday scenes (it was off when I took the pictures). What's really disturbing is that this house ends up being a landmark for identifying my street.


... and the winner is....

Contestant #4: How bad is their taste? Let me count (one, two, three) the ways. In case anyone thought that Christmas wasn't commercial enough there is apparently a market for garage door nativity scenes. This house looks like a casino that went horribly wrong. The tower/star is visible from several blocks away and makes the entire display about 40' tall. Proof once again that some people have way too much free time.

Honorable Mention: This house tried, but it couldn't quite compete with the winner (despite the scary 8' tall snowman and window nativity scene). Yes, apparently the window nativity is a mass market product that you too can go out and by and torment your neighbors with.


Oh, I'm really going to have to snap a photo of our next-door neighbor. Not as bad as your winner but enough to make me cringe every time I come home. A big blowup santa AND snowman... :P
