It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Wowzers.  I wonder how expensive their electricity bill is.

I grew up in a house in a cul-de-sac that went crazy for Christmas.  Seriously, there would be a constant stream of cars near Christmas and we would make it into the paper and stuff.  

"Go to Hillbrooke, they know what's what when it comes to Christmas lights!!" 

That's what they would say.  

There would be so many Christmas lights on our house (which was decorated like a gingerbread house, by the by) that I would have to unplug some of them if I wanted to blow dry my hair.  OR I WOULD BLOW A FUSE.

I tell you, we did not joke around.

What do you guys do for Christmas?  Or Hanukkah?

Being Jewish, I'm totally in love with over-the-top Christmas lights! Every Christmas my family gets Chinese food, goes to a movie and then drives around looking for the most outrageous lights we can find.
