Friendly Christmas Lights Competition [PHOTOS]
It's the tail end of the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend...and in my neighborhood that can mean only one thing...
I've been writing about the "friendly" Christmas Lights competition in my neighborhood for 3 years now, on nj1015.com...although its been "on" for longer than that...
...this is something the whole neighborhood looks forward to all year...
Each season, my neighbors "FedEx Pat" and "Cornershow Bob" string up the lights!
And, its truly something to behold!
FedEX Pat (and Mrs. FedEx Jen) put up the whole display in one weekend...and that is the way it stays through Christmas Day...
On the other hand, while Cornershow Bob (and Mrs. Cornershow Ginny) put up a majority of their display this afternoon...they will add more lights right up to Christmas Day! Its a continual "evolution."
As both displays progressed through this afternoon, passing cars would slow down to watch (or, more accurately "gawk").
And, yes, displays of this size take time to plan...and more than a few hours to put up!
This evening, as darkness enveloped the Great Garden State (and I jumped in my car to head into New Jersey 101.5), both teams were still at it!
"Stay tuned" to nj1015.com...to see the displays in all their night-time glory!
It will be...AMAZING!
