Christmas Light Show

We visited a house recently that is all lit up for Christmas. There is a light show, and the lights are coordinated with music. It is loud and obnoxious. And very, very cool! Lots of people are driving by to take a look, and even more people are parking their cars to come up to the house to watch the light show.

Right now, this neighborhood is not very peaceful. This house is on my old stomping grounds, right on the way to my high school. Of course, when I was in high school, this house didn’t exist. Many older homes have been torn down and “McMansions” have been built in their place. I can’t even imagine the amount of money it took to create such a display.

However, this house is so popular for more than the lights. The owners are raising money for the Wounded Warrior Project, and their goal is to raise $10,000.

Perhaps they are bringing some peace to the world after all!

This house is at the corner of Belle Plaine and Engle. We gave a small donation for Wounded Warrior Project, and if you are in the neighborhood, it’s worth a visit!

  1. That is some display! I love that they are collecting for a worthy cause too – what a wonderful way to connect to the spirit of the season.

    There is a house on the next street over that goes all out – the owner is out the week of Thanksgiving getting it all ready. It takes him a few days, and he adds something new every year. That’s a lot of work!

  2. Well, you were certainly right about the loud part! But it looks quite good as well.

    The grandmother of one of my colleagues has done her house up for Christmas as well. Not as gaudy as your example, but the photos in the paper showed every square centimeter was filled with santas and snowmen and other Christmas stuff. And the outside has not been left alone either and there are people driving past especially to see the house. It’s on a back road of a back road, so you really notice the traffic!
