When we lived in Maryland, there was a house that drew so much traffic they had to have someone direct it. It had everything lit up in the yard from the Smurfs to ET.

Those are pretty! We don't do outside lights so much, but we enjoy going on an evening drive to view them.

we have several ares like that around here.  one house near me that goes big; they have motion and music and stuff, really nice.  It's gets busier the closer to the holidays it gets but worth it every year.  Another house had a line of cars to see it and the next year they closed it off,

Wow, those are amazing!  I can imagine their electric bill going up LOL.

We put up just a few lights in the windows during our holidays, but nothing big.
