My Neighborhood Christmas Lights Competition Part 2 [PHOTOS]


Joy! Its Christmastime at Bob & Ginny’s house! (Craig Allen photo)

For the past few years, two of my neighbors have waged a “friendly competition” when it comes to home Christmas lights. Clark Griswold (“Christmas Vacation”) would be proud!

“Fed Ex Pat” strung up his lights, right after Thanksgiving. I wrote about him last week (click here).

“Cornershow Bob” has now entered the fray.  He’s been delayed by on-going Hurricane Sandy cleanup… There are no lights on the roof this year, as he needs some roof repair. And, he lost lots of trees. He’s not alone…

Unlike Pat, who puts up his display and then “leaves it alone,” Bob continually adds to his light-a-palooza!

So, while he is referring to himself as “Last Minute Bob” this year, he says “don’t count me out!”

Its just a good way of saying: Its EARLY…there’s MORE coming!

My neighbors love this competition…so do the cars that come from far-and-wide to see it in all its glory!

I hope you enjoy the pictures here at!

“Stay tuned!”
