    I will put it on my list and maybe my BIL will get it for me. He usually asks what I want.

    Back in 1984 I was in the middle of a divorce and had moved about 100 miles away from the home I'd shared with my husband. I was lonely and depressed and I had a depressing little apartment. I was driving home one night from work, it was around 11:30pm, and I was feeling so sad, when I came around the corner and saw this amazing house just blazing with all kinds of merry, twinkling lights. I had to pull over and just stare at it for awhile. It really lifted my spirits to think that the owners of this house had gone out of their way, out of nothing but the spirit of the season, to make passers-by, especially children, happy. The next day I went out and got a tiny little tree and some lights and decorated my little apartment. That display really helped turn my attitude around, and I always wished I'd left them some sort of a note on their doorstep.
    If you owned a house like that in Westbrook, Maine back in the mid-eighties, please know that you really made a difference in a sad woman's life. Thank you!
    And THAT's what I think about Christmas lights on a house!

    I like it and agree. Too mch is just vulgar and annoying if you can't sleep because the neighbours house is as bright as a nuclear explosion

    When I see a house overly decorated I just think how much Christmas Spirit they must have to do all that work! I wouldn't have that much stuff, but it makes me happy to think that they are happy doing it. Then again, I don't have one of those houses near me, so I couldn't say if I'd feel the same if their lights were keeping me awake at night.
    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.

    That's a very good point...Just because someone puts up a lot of lights doesn't mean they're doing it to purposefully look tacky or get attention. They may just be HUGE Christmas enthusiasts who like to decorate their home.
