How many Christmas lights are too many? [With poll]

By johnboy - 20 December 2011 35

Forrest

A couple of weeks ago the Canberra Times was breathlessly reporting the Guinness world record attempt light show of the Richards family at 3. Tennyson Crescent in Forrest.

Two weeks later we note Guinness remains silent on the issue.

But MJay has been down to see them and sent in these photos.

We thought we’d take this opportunity to ask what you lot think of ostentatious light displays, beyond a well done tree in the window?

Ever more lavish Christmas light displays

Christmas lights. Enviromentally irresponsible, a foreign concept imported into this country some time back, and a complete ego centric look at me effort.

Put your lit up Christmas tree in the front window of your house, and be a good citizen.

Shoving as many random lights and nicknacks into the front yard as possible is easy. Doing it while making it look as good as this (and for charity) is another matter entirely – good on em.

We went. It was great. It was chockas and when we left there was a line of people about 100 metres long.

Good on em I reckon.

However many is too many, 3 Tennyson Crescent Forrest has probably overstepped that line.

Yeah I reckon, look at all the people in the photo enjoying themselves, and at Christmas! What a pack of wankers! The worst part is they’re passing on donations to SIDS research!

This is a good one, though I imagine it going over and over again all night could really annoy the neighbours

Hey, isn’t this like people who drive their Italia’s along Bunda St. Flaunting their wealth and success?

If it is, then I am all for it… Its not often us plebs get to see such fine workmanship… 😉

i saw a news report on a house in sydney, and they said they had spent over $20,000 on lights and their electricity bill over the period was $4000.

nuts.

but the kids like it.

Oh well I guess someone had to do it.

I want to set up some prog trance and have a rave there.
