I have to go back to that site to read the hate mail.  A few years ago, I think that my parent's house would qualify to be on that list.  Not to mention that my uncle decorates his house in an over the top manner as well.

so very very full of xmas cheer! I am distressed that Babe the Big Blue Ox has lost his head though, and a big wreath is there. I wonder what happened? Trees of Mystery, where he and Paul reside (Paul has a speaker inside him, and frightens children in the summer) is one of the most wonderfully tacky roadside attractions on Highway 1 in N. CA.

I'll be honest... I enjoy over-decorated houses. I wonder how they afford the electric bill and am glad I don't live next door, but I do enjoy them.

Well, you are from TX, where in general too much is still not enough, so it's understandable. And we certainly have more than our fair share here in CA. Our family favorite here in SF is a beautiful mansion on top of a hill that has elves scaling the walls, and Santa skiing in the front yard

Our city has free bus tours of the most-decorated neighbourhoods.  I think they hand out prizes, too.  Dh and I take an annual drive through our favourite 'theme' neighbourhoods and visit the super-tacky individual homes at least once over Christmas.  I'm convinced some of them pay more in hydro for that one month than we pay in land-rent for the entire year!

I think my favorite was back when I was showing/breeding dachshunds and we had one couple in the local breed club who did woodworking and LOVED to decorate. Now remember, this was long before the inflatable came into being, but Ron and Jeannie had a couple of Santas in the yard and on the roof, and all his elves and reindeer were dachshunds. It was absolutely a riot (and VERY well done).

I don't woodwork (yet, mainly because there isn't really anyplace in this house to turn into a workshop), but I do paint wood, and can say there's an addictive component, so I can really see how that'd happen.

The dachshunds hooked up to the sleigh up on the roof were my absolute favs. Course, santa getting stuck in the chimney helped too. *g*

LOVE IT! I would so love to see a pic of that.
