Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
The Touch of the Amateur
We love walking through the Winterhaven neighborhood during the holidays. The displays are usually quite good and sometimes surpassingly great. And the whole experience has a distinctly anti-corporate feel. Sure, the lights come from a store, but the overall effect is not the sort of thing you're going to see from professionals. That makes it a lot more fun for us (and many other Tucsonans who wander the streets). This house is always one of our favorites because of the giant trees with lights over fifty feet up and the star to cap everything off:

The Griswolds are not the Pottery Barn sort, thank goodness!

Pottery Barn Christmas Aesthetic creeps me the fuck out. Give me gobs of bulbs , plastic Santas and those rope light things anyday over that tasteful overpriced crap from Pottery Barn. That shit is even worse than icicle lights.

But I wonder what on earth the godless heathens were thinking, hanging that huge devil-worshipper star over their house?
