    I wouldn't mind being a neighbor. I bet his bill is easily like $500 a month.

    Dude, this guy consistently makes amazing Christmas light setups. He's even had his house in a commercial (the compact van with the giant hamsters...Kia I think?) With LMFAO. Great to see he's still in the game!

    my friend told me that he saw it on the local news.. the house is here in my area (Dallas / Ft Worth). news said it was all LEDs and the owner used his pc to program it and the bill would only be around $15/month extra.

    I can't think of a better way to celebrate the birth of Christ Jesus, our Lord and Savior, than to annoy the neighbors with disco music and flashing lights...

    What war on Christmas? :p

    That's a far cry from the candle in the window and a wreath on the door.
    I'm just trying to envision how tangled that stuff gets in the shed between seasons.

    I HATE it. Just HATE it!

    What has happened to Christmas? A traditional and tasteful Christmas. Santa and elves and mistletoe and lovely traditional ornaments and gingerbread cookies and people with decency?

    I was arrested last year for displaying naked gingerbread men and accused of abuse as I bit the head off one such cookie. There I was in jail on Christmas Eve with 42 drunk Santa's.

    Crap. Pure and utter crap! Dag Nabbit!

    These large and sweeping displays driven by loud and crappy music drive me nuts. I can almost see myself in trouble for wrapping the whole shebang with good quality hemp rope; attaching the other end to my car and pulling everything from the ground. I figure it will need to be done twice and the replacement cost will be just too high.

    Hells bells . . . even Baby Jesus has been kicked from the manger and replaced with Hobbits or some gender neutral, politically neutral or religious neutral crap. And the manger ripped from the public square.

    If any of you have such displays, I am comming for you.

    No, I propose a Jihad. I agree with you, Speed. Many changes since my day.

    I still demand real trees . . . how about you?

    Candles in the windows kill 14,555 people every year. They pollute the environment and we now know wax causes cancer and tuberculous in old people and children.

    Here in Utah, we cantuse candles because of the new sno moking laws.

    Wreaths on the door mean you killed a tree. Trees give us life and just think of the damage done transporting those wreaths to your local five and dime. Plastics is no good because of the oil and global cooling.

    Sorry, but candles are only approved for use on the doors of Luddites and the Amish. You should have enjoyed the season more growing up . . . Christmas is gone.

    Pretty cool although I'm starting to feel overwhelmed Gangnam Style.

    1/2 my neighbors barely want to put up a tree so a light show like this would be the last thing we'd have to worry about.

    When I was a kid we had a real real tree: the evergreen tree in our front yard. Doesn't get better than that! It brings back fond memories of falling asleep at the window as I waited for Santa Claus when I was little...and when I was older, waiting up with a shotgun and plenty of coffee for any looters who tried to steal the gifts under our evergreen. :D

    We tried the indoor tree thing, but after learning the hard way that dried-out pine needles in the fireplace and a wood shingle roof didn't mix, we had to look into something more fireproof. Turns out that a VHF discone antenna draped in green plastic makes an ideal Xmas tree for the QSL. Top it off with an angel, and the top radials painted gold for a halo, and you're all set for hours of Christmas cheer listening to the police and fire calls for drunken revelers getting into fights, driving into ditches etc.
