Run Amok

 On the way to a doctor appointment out of town, we passed this house. I could hardly believe it! So on the way home, we turned and I took a few photos. I have never seen a house with so many decorations! They were in the front, back, and sides! But for me, I could not appreciate any one thing because there were so many that nothing was really in the spotlight.







My favorites were the beautiful and elaborate angels.


To perceive Christmas through its wrapping becomes more difficult with every year.

The angels are my favorites too. The people with this display sure put in a lot of hours of work, I think it is fun to look at.

I love the angels, those are definitely my favorites. That is a bit too much with all those decorations.

your title is perfect, Chrismtas Run Amok it is... no way to see past the wrappings like in the quote.. and the sad thing is, on the first Chrismtas morn there were no gifts, no wrapping no lights. just 3 people in a barn stall

We pass a few houses like that as we go here and there. One is on a large main road and it just looks to me like confusion. I prefer simplicity and focus. But I can appreciate their enthusiasm to enjoy the season and make folks happy. Those angels really are gorgeous. xoxo

That is a perfect quote for this. My goodness, that's a lot of decoration. We have a house similar to this on a cul-de-sac a few streets over. People seem to enjoy it at night though as a parade of cars go by throughout the holiday. We have actually taken visitors there over the years. The angels are my favorite too and make a great header shot. So pretty!

I love the angels, too. But it is hard to really see any of them because there is so much. There was a house we used to pass that was like that.

Oh my - that is too much! I passed a house like that yesterday.

Yes, there are too many of them. It looks more like a Christmas park.
