2010 Ugly Christmas lights festival

An annual tradition @ Ramblings.... let the sarcastic reviews commence....

Mourning the loss of the deflated inflatables.

Thought this one was quite funny, maybe too realistic?
 Too many 9-11 calls required them to take it down. 

The giant bow just won't do!

That's Different--  but where do you put the star??

They still could squeeze in a few more things.....

This pick up has picked up 3000 lights. 

Home is where the port-a-potty is???

The lamp from "A Christmas Story"-- Caution FRAGILE!

Merry Whopping Utility Bill!

Slightly obsessed?

There must be therapy for this!

There used to be a house in a nearby town that everyone went to see that looked rather like that last one. People like this must have OCD! These are all great, thanks for getting me in the holiday spirit!

there's a yiddish word for this--ungapatchka.

OK Nonnie ~ I looked it up...

Urban Dictionary: ungapatchka
a Yiddish word that describes the overly ornate, busy, ridiculously over- decorated, and garnished to the point of distaste.


Maui~ OCD for sure. Beyond enjoyable... kind of troubling, really.

Hey! If you have $1500 extra bucks per month to run light shows like these.... how about donating to the homeless shelter or some other worthy cause???

Some of these could be called "Hoarders: The Christmas Episode."

Fran said...

Volly~ Ha! Good one

Hope you are having a nice holiday season... in a toned down kind of way.

Displays like that make me feel very grinch-y.

There was a display of an inflatable SSanta and a reindeer on a porch that never failed to make me laugh during the day--deflated, they looked like a couple of hungover creatures barfing into the rhododendrons.
