I actually live near house #7. The whole street looks like that! It's pretty cool to drive by!
Well, if you lived next door you could save money on electricity. Just turn you lights off for the whole month! :D However, if you like your bedroom dark at night, it could be annoying.
I don't think they are tacky. As my dad would say, "I would NOT want their electric bill!!"
I think it's awesome.
i don't think any of those are tacky. this is what is looks like in my neighborhood
I love these!! If I had the money my house would be decked out!!
I have to say - I don't think they are tacky - maybe a bit overboard but not tacky. Enjoy the lights it only lasts a short amount of time
The only tacky thing here is you. You are not being forced to decorate like this or pay their electric bill, so who cares? FYI, most people have lights on a timer so they aren't on all night.
I actually love houses like this! It is so fun to drive around during December and look at lights.
Hmmmm is it me or is the word "tacky" overused on the Stir by its writers?
I also don't think the displays are really tacky. Not something I'd do - but that's only because I'm lazy & cheap. lol We don't do any outside lights, our only outside decoration is a wreath.
Those displays do make my neighbor look pretty restrained, though, which is funny since she has a reputation for going all out.
