Animated House
(1 of 18) (5790 views)

Christmas_House_Lighting_201012256_202908_BCY_3119.jpg

This house was animated in time to an FM station. A car could drive along the street in front and tune to that station. The result was a light show timed to that broadcast Christmas music.

Snowman

One house was more modest in its display. A couple of light reindeer and a lit snowman decorated the lawn. A few bushes and the trim of the house were lit, but the lights were not timed but rather just remained turned on.

Another animated house, this one a low ranch-style house with "Merry Christmas" in lights on its roof. The yard showed a small manger setting and dozens of more festive characters.

Lit Present
(9 of 18) (3883 views)

Christmas_House_Lighting_201012256_210749_BCY_3146.jpg

A Christmas present created using lights. It wrapped the space inside which was clearly empty. Perhaps symbolic of the hollow commercial aspect of Christmas.

Across from the overly decorated house was a typical modestly trimmed suburban home. Notice the lavish home across the street reflected in the front windows.

This home was filled out front with dozens of Christmas themed toys. A low fence bordered the yard and flashed on and off. It was off when this shot was taken.

One home was decorated in blue icicles. The effect, although simple, was strikingly beautiful.

Tangled Elf

Christmas_House_Lighting_201012256_214212_BCY_3178.jpg

An elf was tangled in lights next to a partly decorated tree. Were we to pity the poor elf or mock him for being so dumb?

Polar Bears

Christmas_House_Lighting_201012256_214318_BCY_3180.jpg

One yard had a pair of polar bears out front. The heads moved slowly back and forth. The lights in the head of the smaller bear had failed because of rain.
