Ken's Tacky Christmas Tour
Thursday, 2005 December 15 - 1:53 am
The top three loudest Christmas displays I've found so far this year.

#3: I call this one "Invasion of the Alien Ornaments". One or two new invaders appear each year.




#2: I call this "Meet the Griswolds".




#1: I call this "Jesus in Toyland". This picture doesn't do justice to the acre of ornaments and lights on this property:



Here's a bonus picture from Jesus in Toyland:

About 10 years ago, my cousin (I think he was about 5 at the time) decided that on Christmas, we should have a birthday cake for Jesus. So my aunt ordered a birthday cake and had "happy birthday Jesus" written on it, and then we all had to sing. Which you know, Jesus is the Reason for the Season and all that, but it was a little strange.

This made me think of that scene from "Full Metal Jacket", where those Marine recruits were all singing "Happy Birthday" to Jesus. :lol:

No addresses or street names? No neighborhoods?

#3 is in Cary, on Tarbert Dr just south of Cary Parkway.

#2 is in Garner, on Cotton Bolt Ct, near Hwy 50.

#1 is south of Raleigh, on Ten-Ten Road. I don't remember the exactly where; I think it's not far from Hwy 401.

Happy Birthday Jesus almost killed me I laughed so hard. Maybe this is how I will celebrate Christmas from now on. As a birthday party for Jesus, with hats and balloons and grocery store cake. So, how many candles would that be? I may have to purchase in bulk.

Also, this is exactly the kind of gaudy shit I'm going to be forced to look at from the back seat of the car when I go back to Ohio in a week. CAN'T WAIT!

I saw a house tonight that had Happy Birthday Jesus spelled out in lights, it was so big that it covered the entire side of the house. I'm guessing that they've already ordered the cake and party favors.
