Do You Go Overboard With Christmas Lights Decorations?
"An Arizona woman who decided not to compete with her neighbor's holiday lights display is gaining attention for her own lights arranged to read 'Ditto.'
Kristina Green of Marcopia, who is spending her first holiday season in the area, said she knew she could not compete with the 20,000-light display her neighbor created for the Christmas season so the lights decorating her house merely spell out 'Ditto' with an arrow pointing toward the elaborate display."There are a couple of neighbors in my block who make the Griswolds' Christmas decorations look muted and restrained.
These oxygen thieves spend hundreds, if not thousands, on Christmas displays that bring unwanted traffic to my neighborhood.
If I lived next to one of these jokers I would have my own lights arranged to spell out "Moron" with an arrow pointing to my neighbor's house.
The money spent for these garish lights could have been used to feed the hungry in our community.
People, let's get real: A simple wreath will suffice!
