Good god, that's obnoxious!! Taggart, how do you and Liz stand all that blinking and the music blaring each and every night?!

Well, it's not my cup of tea but I have come to terms with it. In Steve's own words "I have a very, very stressfull job (he is a commercial roofer, owns and operates) this is how I unwind."
He only runs it from 7 to 9, and wants to get together to test the volume from the interior of my house. Just to make sure he doesnt completley piss everyone off.
He does not drink, is a GREAT FATHER to his 4 year old.
He tries to bring everyone around him into his project, there are two houses you are seeing actually....he has his neighbor to his right involved.
His halloween exhibit is even larger apparently. This year he didnt go ALL out but he did have a pretty massive setup.....then he hired a moonwalking inflatable thing opened up his backyard and had a block party.
My point is that it may be crazy annoying but it brings more fun and joy to the WHOLE neighborhood, than aggravation to me.
So I borrowed his eight inflatable GIANT Christmas ballon figures that he didnt have room for.
Will post pictures of that soon.

I think the display is a pretty pure expression of enthusiasm expressed to the max. I'm not certain how Christmas lighting can be taken to any higher plane--fountains of fire and searchlights maybe? It would be really interesting to make some YouTube clips of Steve talking about how/why/etc.
