Every town has that house that outdoes itself at Christmas.
Legendary for miles around, it is the place to see dazzling
holiday decorating of the eye-popping, traffic-stopping
sort. This flickering showcase bedecked with tens of
thousands of lights is hard to resist--and ignore--as often
every square inch is caked in Christmas, from snowmen to
elves, carousels to candy canes. But who lives in that
house--and houses like it around the country? And what
compels this Christmas-decorating fervor?
Author Bruce Littlefield finds the answers on his quest to
locate the most spectacular Christmas displays across
America. His adventures take him to the front lawns and
doors of people in cities and towns from coast to coast who
have a flair and fanaticism for doing Christmas right--whose
goal is giving the world an illuminated, inflated, decorated
gift. Littlefield shares his firsthand encounters with
people for whom Christmas is a year-round labor of love--the
people who spend mind-boggling amounts of time and money
transforming their houses and yards, and even those of the
neighbors, into unique Christmas fantasylands that are
spectacles of individual expression and must-see
destinations for the rest of us. These portraits of
Christmas range from tacky to refined, outlandish to
poignant--and the reasons they are created vary, too--but
all are dazzling in their own ways, and the passionate
people who dream them up have entertaining stories and
anecdotes to tell that will make this Christmas the
brightest, merriest, happiest Christmas ever. Just follow
