    I am just curious. Are there any sites out there that show people's Christmas displays? If you have pictures, all the better.

    I wouldn't say "major", I am just thorough. I outline the roof, and the lines of the house, and each light must be perfectly straight, all standing the same direction. I use shingle clips and a staple gun to make everything look just right.
    My wife kids me a lot that Kansas City International Airport calls and asks me to turn off my lights, because I am confusing the pilots!

    I wrote my name in the snow once if that counts. [​IMG]
    Historically, I don't decorate my house because I'm rarely home during the winter, most of my time having been spent at work or at my last girlfriend's place, but I help my folks decorate their house every year. If I don't find a job (or woman) soon, I may very well be decorating my house this year. [​IMG]

    You can't do much outdoor decorating in an apartment building, but my wife and I do support the Fund for Park Avenue, which sponsors a 30+ block display of white lights down the center of Park every December. It's one of New York City's best Christmas displays.

    I have been as high as 3500 lights at one time. Last year was around 1000. But this year I have a bigger yard and house and plan on breaking my own record. Something about the scene in Christmas Vacation when Clark finally gets the lights to work that always chokes me up. [​IMG]

    I just do some lights. I am no Clark Griswald by any stretch of the imagination. My Dad came over for Independance Day and noted how I was already ready for Christmas. ( I left my lights up from last year.) [​IMG]
