The Wildly Wacky, Bizarre, Funny, Strange, and Crazy World of Christmas Lights

Whoever said that less is more when it comes to the joyful holiday of Christmas and decorating your house with a few strands of lights was dead wrong. There are Crazy Christmas lights and then there are Christmas lights times 20.

Whoever said that less is more when it comes to the joyful holiday of Christmas and decorating your house with a few strands of lights was dead wrong. There are Crazy Christmas lights and then there are CHRISTMAS LIGHTS times 20!!!

I have searched the farthest reaches on the Internet to find some of the most off the wall and over the top Christmas light displays that will not only require you to reach for some shades, you’ll be reaching into your pockets to pay a $1000.00 electric bill every month until the holiday is over, or until they take them down in February.

Being that I’m already in the Christmas mood, listen to Nate King Cole as you take your tour of the Wildly Wacky World of Crazy Christmas Lights.

I never said that getting into the spirit was a bad thing, but when your house lights up the entire neighborhood and children are coming to ride the Ferris wheel in your front yard well, I think you’ve reached the point of no return.

I’ll give you hundred bucks if you can find the house. It’s like searching for Waldo in a sea of light bulbs.

This reminds me of the scene from the movie National Lampoons Christmas vacation when Chevy Chase used over 25,000 twinkle lights to light his house, or almost blow up his house.

Regardless of the tackiness or the ridiculous nature of the decoration of these houses; the true spirit of Christmas is alive in the strands of the lights, the colorful nature of the optic snowmen and reindeer, and the artificial snow that grips the grass and drapes the roof.

    so cool and fantastic,just make sure that when you install Christmas lights they’re original, lots of fire occurrences in the Philippines, specifically in Metro Manila were cause by low quality Christmas lights

    Very good article with great pics. I set up indoor xmas displays, but I quit putting up lights a long time ago. Of course, here in Texas, I do not think as many people decorate outside as they do in the north.

    Wow what amazing lights!! Outside decorations have only just hit Cyprus, we noticed they are the sort we had in UK 30yrs ago, some American expats have brought over some great ones, I will be investing in a few this year. Good article.

    This article reminds me of Winterhaven here in Tucson. It’s actually mandatory that if you live here, you must put up Christmas lights. Winterhaven has become a spot for visitors during the winter time, and boy can that place get nuts! Some of these pictures are just outright nuts, but I must admit, I kind of like the last one…lol! Take care. :)

    Christmas lights indeed bring an extra festive mood to the season. In the Philippines, Christmas decorations can start as early as Sept.1. God bless.

    I love Christmas Lights. A few years back, we had a neighbor gentlemen decorate his home to the point were it looked like Santa’s home. People took tours through it until he sadly passed away last year. I figured out how to Digg this story, so I did.
