Christmas Spirit

Just standing in this area cheers me up (even though I've lost my holiday cheer for this year). People looking at these lights are all happy and joyful! Full of holiday cheer! Nice people... something you don't see here everyday.


Even the homeowner is in the giving mood as he has a money box where he raises money for the Sick Kids foundation!

    I've seen something remotely comparable only once, in Yonkers NY. Great shot, that captures the atmosphere very well. Cheers :)

    I saw a house with a lot of lights in Mississauga and thought it was the most decorated house ever, but this one just dwarfs it! Makes you wonder if this guy's electric bill is higher than what's in his donation basket :)

    There are a few lights on that buildings front...thanks for sharing and glad it cheers you up, for various reasons the christmas cheer is not upon me either so can relate.

    Holy Griswold, lol... Saw a house last night that I thought went way overboard but this tops that!

    I have to admit, although this is nice, it's a bit too over the top.

    I love christmas myself, and love christmas lights too, but really... think of how much more money he could give if he put up a pretty but modest display and gave the money that he uses to pay his electric bill to the sick kids.....just a thought....

    This is not the time to be over the top with the electricity.If they have this much money to run these lights I hope they give to charities and I hope they at least help someone right here in our own backyard.Let's face it the USA needs the help.I know we need to help out other countries too,I just hope that people who have this kind of money to spend,please place it in the right hands.Having said that.......Your house IS outstanding.
