I would say this is a labor of LOVE for everyone who drives by to enjoy!  Watch your negative critiques because most often they are more of a reflection of the one speaking the words then the artist.  I bet these people donate heavily to Christmas fundraisers.  It is obvious they have the spirit.

I once knew a senior couple in Kelowna who did their yard and house up, then accepted donations to cover the power, anything over and above was donated to the food bank.  Their home put the spirit of the season into the hearts of hundreds of people, including me, who don't decorate.  It was sad when they became to old to continue.

Thank-you for those who do!

The owners of the house put allot of time and effort into this. It is very festive even if the picture via the internet looks like it could be crowded and a bit much. I love Christmas lights.

This is nothing compared to the house on 97 Street in Edmonton, AB.  See it here http://christmas.bronners.com/2005/house/116.html.  And it probably has twice as many lights as this now!

Ok you did Houses how about an H3 HUMMER with over 300 LED lights 105 of which blink twinkle or colour change. 12 meters of pine garland two candy canes two wreaths one front and one rear . 24 ft of candy cane led rope . when parked it has a big plush reindeer on his roof rack . The truck runs dark to events then uses over 12 aa batteries and two big booster boxes to light up . It has been spotted in The Bloor West Village area of Toronto.

This is a bit to much. There is a cool light display hooked up to Christmas music on Sydney Ave in Coquitlam, just off Austin and Guilby.  The lights flash to the beat of the music.

The world is hungry from War Weapons killing parents and destroying resources (plundered) but the men who made MONEY from torture are lighting FIRE on their Hell of a Yard with money earned from ROBBING other lands? Shame on you.
Rich is a lie and fake- These are ROBBED money or illegally PRINTED money. You have no rights to print as you wish - Thugs with Weapons - Plain CRIMINALS .
