Ehh...

Sometimes more is less. The house looks like a Vegas casino, I almost went into a seizure just looking at that. My neighbor has decorated his house with a small lit nativity scene on his lawn and a candle in each of his four front windows. Far more elegant than the epilepsy inducing display in the video.

Me too. I can be equal to my neighbors, but nobody can be better than me. Yes I’ve started a Christmas lights arms race on my coldesac.

"...Glad I’m not their neighbors..."

Yeah... They're probably glad too, Scrooge McGrinch (BTW, are there really two of you "neighbors"?).

I’m thinking more of the nightmare of having those lights beam through your windows all night, plus the need to attempt to have to keep up.

That's nothing. This house in Little Rock used to run 3 million lights at Christmas time...before they were shut down by a court order in the early 90's.

I actually installed kitchen cabinets in one of the guest houses on this property one summer during my high school years. It was a more modest estate back then...

I'm probably just just being cranky, but I just figure I have no business telling my neighbors what they can do on their property (since I don't want them telling me what I can do on mine). That's one reason why I have blinds. And I guess that one of the few benefits being a Jones, is that I never have to worry about keeping up with the other Jones's.
