Christmas House. Christmas House

Remarkable, but not for the claustrophobic. You walk through very narrow passageways, but it is overwhelming to see all the stuff this family has collected throughout the years.

The yard definitely looks better at night when everything is lit up; during the day it is not as dramatic.

Christmas House

The Christmas House has been around since I was a kid. This guy loves Christmas --- year-round. It is just a tiny row house on Main Street, but I swear airplanes must be blinded as they fly over. The inside is just as insane -- every room except one is one for viewing and jam packed with x-mas kitsch. He has also started doing Thanksgiving, Valentine's Day and Halloween displays in recent years.
