I hate putting lights up. Thankfully my neighbor takes care of this shit for me:
that's what my house is gonna look like tonight
well maybe 1/10,000th of that
The pictures do not do it justice. It is fucking insane.
my head hurts now. Also, that has to be a major fire hazard.
What, no fake snow soap bubble machine?
There used to be a guy here who would do something similar - he'd put a box out front for donations to help defray the electric bill
This guy has a box out front, but it is for Schneider's Children's Hospital.
I like that idea better than asking people to help defray your electrical costs.
Can you PM me the address? I'd love to take my nephews to see it.
This house is decent, but nothing compared to this place I lived near in FL.
They even have their own website.
The house uses 3 meters, and has a bill of several thousand dollars. They have even been featured on several TV shows over the years. Check out the website for a bunch of pictures.
I saw a really gorgeous house on the Halifax River in New Smyrna Beach the other day but I couldn't stop on the bridge to take a picture and there was no other way to take a picture without actually being on the river. I know...useless without pics
It is just off of the Southern State Parkway. Come East, take the North 231 Exit (North Babylon). Make your first right. Easy as pie.
oh dear god, ,there was a few of those idots around here, but i think the neighbors finaly put the kibosh on it. it was a pain the the ass traffic wise let alone the fucking lights....... i hate decorating my house my wife put lights up last year and there still up. i have to plug them in and see if they work. ive found in the past you can get several years out of them being out all the time before the strings start to go, i like to turn them on in the summer
I spent $500 on led lights for the house and hedge. That's more than enough for me.
yoou know yer a redneck whenn...
get your .22 out
Is that the place in Deer Park, right off DPA?
If so, this guy gets bigger and bigger every year. People come from all over the island to see his house. The traffic on DPA is going to suck big time this year with the Jones Beach Lights not being done.
That is the one. Hope Brady dies.
There was a guy back in Albuquerque when I was growing up that had a similar setup - he eventually started putting out collection boxes for local childrens charities, because so many people were coming to see his house, he wanted to try to turn it into something truly good.
Fucking neighbors eventually got him shut down. He ended up donating the collection to a non-profit foundation that put them up at a nearby strip mall.
Sounds like as of this year, they are looking for yet another new home though.
There is a house near me that goes all-out every year. I drove past last night and saw they are up and running. I'll try and take a picture.
Of course you do...
funny story (that's right people, put on your laffing hats)
I shoot squirrels at the farm all the time with the 12 gauge, and the people that live across the road feed the fucking things, so per year I shoot close to 60 of the fuckers. A few years ago I was out of shells for the shotgun so I was popping on off with the .22, and I enjoy taking them apart limb by limb with the .22. The neighbour came to his fence when I was shooting them and was yelling at me because he said the bullets were deflecting towards him. Now, I was close to 500 yards away from him, shooting the opposite direction he was, and it's a .22, as soon as they hit something they are done for. I told him to fuck off, he called the RCMP and they told him to fuck off as well. Nice to know I can shoot whatever and whenever I want at the farm, he hasn't spoke to me since.
and I live in town, no squirrels I've seen, just fucking cats. I HAAAATE CATS
If any neighbor of mine does this, I'm lining mt sidewalk with fire extinguishers.
Looks cool, but holy fuckin deathtrap batman!
Are you going to change your User ID to Scrooge? Bah humbug Kevin
p.s. I think living next to something like that would drive me nuts as well
Wacka wacka, you nutty Canucks.
If it makes you feel any better, I'll dress up an an elf before I put out the fire!
