Wishing everyone peace, health, understanding and prosperity this Holiday Season and into 2013!!
More than you probably want to know:
This home belongs to Bob and Julie who live in Bloomington MN just south of the Mall of America. They have been decorating the big oak tree in their front yard with around 40,000 Christmas lights since 2001. The Tree has become a local Holiday landmark that can be seen for miles up and down the Minnesota River Valley. It's so bright that airline pilots have been known to point out this tree to passengers when landing at the nearby Minneapolis International Airport. The owners are very accommodating to photographers but ask that the images not be used commercial profit - it's a gift they give to the community for free.
