Ugly Christmas Lights

When screenshotit comes to decorating your house for the holidays, nothing says "Christmas" like an inflatable SpongeBob SquarePants. To many homeowners, capturing the spirit of the season involves an enormous number of lights and an enormous utility bill. Those whose homes don't quite epitomize the spirit of goodwill to all manage to embrace the spirit of "too much of a good thing is still too much." In a stunning departure from traditional decorations, a decked-out T. rex lurks in the wilds of suburbia, while a lonely trailer park Santa greets visitors. Operating under the pseudonym of "Santa," the owner of this site has found some of the most over-the-top Christmas lights ever perpetrated on a neighborhood. If you're pining for the tasteful seasonal decorations of yesteryear, you'll find them here -- among the glitter and glitz of today's excesses.

My neighbour thinks that the best way to spread the spirit of Christmas is to have huge inflatable Santas on either side of his gate and other tasteless plastic decorations on every exposed wall of his house!
