But this house is not only about the lights. That is the understatement - the BIG thing here is Santa's there for the kids on the front porch. Children can come there and write a letter to Santa, and put it on this rope, which then then use a pulley system to get it up to Santa's sled where it drops into Santa's bag!
People come from miles around to see this house. We should have brought Julianna this year but she wasn't with us that night (since we had a babysitter). We might still bring her there one night if we have time. These pictures don't do it justice since I only had my iphone with me- Next time I will bring my big-girl camera.
Here is the house from across the street.
There are cars going by all night long- and you have to park blocks away to walk here.
Even with the crowds, it's still very warm & inviting. We love it!
Everyone is congregated on the front lawn - It's hard to see, but there is a desk there, with kids waiting to write and deliver that letter to Santa (You can kind of see Santa and his reindeer above the roof over the garage- that's where the letters go!)
I wonder what this guy's electric bill is?!
This was cute- it's a walkway to a little house with a Teddy Bear Santa inside!
Parents & kids waiting on line for Santa!
The real meaning of Christmas.
Does anyone have a house like this by them?
I needed a fun "In the sprit" night like this, especially after the horrible Newtown shooting the day before. This helped to make us smile and think about the holiday again.
Your not gonna believe this but I was there on Saturday night! I AM going to run into you one of these days. Every year we go to this house since the kids were little. Its amazing but I wouldn't want to live on that street!ReplyDelete
We have a neighborhood not too far from us that goes all out, every street has a theme and almost all the houses participate. Traffic is crazy, you just get in line and go from street to street. People even rent limos to drive them thru the lights! I went for the first time back in the 80s as a kid, so they have been doing it for a long time! We haven't gone in a few years, but plan to take Kylie eventually, just a lot of traffic to deal with...ReplyDelete
Oh that is cool! I think every town has one haha. We were joking that we wouldn't want to live there but it is fun to go see :)Delete
I wouldn't want to live there either! I love looking at Christmas lights though :) We just got back from the beach, where there is a light display that you walk thru, Kylie loved it! I need to work on the blog post today, it'll probably be a few posts, I took way too many pictures as usual!ReplyDelete
I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today,ReplyDelete
yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
