Whats the prize
I was driving home from work last week and the annual Christmas lights are going up on peoples houses. Some of them look good, some are far over done.
I thought i would run my own little contest (with a prize). The idea is to post your photographs of the most over done houses with Christmas lights you see on your way to work.
I will post mine tomorrow.
Whats the prize
Erm not sure will rustle something up.
your mac book
OK here are two for you all - This is a house near my brother (in law)'s house
And this is just outside my house!!
There is a cracker just off the M6 opposite Lancaster University. Trouble is you have to drive up the M6 to see it so not sure how I'm going to snatch a photo.
Can you do 70 mph one handed and looking in the wrong direction on the motorway? Thinking about it I probably can but not for long!
I hate it when people dont take them down and you can still see Santa in the middle of august..
agreed on both counts!
Though TBH, we don't take our lights down from above the window.. though at least you cant see them against the soffits! (they are only a small LED set)
Santa's for life, not just for christmas. or is that dogs? I always get them mixed up...
Newport Pagnell has an area that usually looks 'pretty'... sadly, I live nowhere near there
I remember finding a single street somewhere in the US (Christmas Lights are MASSIVE in the states - that's why they're struggling economically :P) and every house is plastered in sparkly lights...
I'm sure we all saw [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IK90Ys2LhSo"]YouTube - Wizards of Winter[/ame]
This was a major exercise, all computer controlled. Did read the technical stuff somewhere once. And the music was transmitted over FM so people could sit in their cars, tune the radio to correct frequency and hear the music, so that the neighbours didn't have to listen to the stuff all the time.
There are some decorated houses locally, I'll take some pics when I'm able.
