Friendly Christmas Lights competition
For the past few years, my neighbors "FedEx Pat" and "Cornershow Bob" have been "stringing up the lights."
The whole neighborhood (and all passersby) enjoy the nightly display!
The ritual begins during the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend...
(to see more "set-up" from last weekend, click here!)
"FedEx Pat" finishes his display Thanksgiving weekend...
"Cornershow Bob" gets started, and just keeps adding to his "show" right up to Christmas Eve! Maybe, even Christmas Day1
New for 2014: The Christmas Bear...and so much more!
Bob's wife Ginny helps...as does "Man's Best Friend!"
As darkness falls, the real show gets underway!
Bob told me that the house would be lit up in blue... (Craig Allen photo).
From another angle:
On Christmas Eve, Bob Williams will be in the "Santa Tracking Station," and he will be able to guide the "Jolly Guy in Red" right to Cornershow's front yard!
Above, a view from the side yard... Do I see a ladder? Yup...this display is not done...
And, soon, Bob will be playing Christmas music, as you drive or walk by...but that doesn't translate well into pictures!
Lets head to Bob's "friendly competitor's" place!
"FedEx Pat's" display is "complete" for this year. The light streams trailing off from the BIG star on the top roof are also new to the display for 2014.

"Seasons Greetings" indeed!
"FedEx Pat's" and "Cornershow Bob's" annual Christmas light displays are something our whole neighborhood looks forward to each year!
And I know that you readers of our articles here at NJ1015.com enjoy the displays, too!
One word...in one picture, sums it up:
