'Tis the season

So, I live next door to this really nice family, a couple with a four year old daughter. The husband is laid off right now and has (apparently) a lot of time on his hands. He spent the last WEEK, putting in 10-12 hour shifts every day putting up his 9 gazillion Christmas lights and (again, apparently) he's been planning his show for quite some time.

Neighbourhood rumour has it, he spent $600 USD for some software program to run his obnoxious Griswald Christmas Vacation light show off his computer. We have to keep the blinds closed on that side of the house or else risk the flashing lights inducing seizures. And that's not even the best part!

We've been noticing that one of the street lights on our road - the one in front of Mr Griswalds house - has been flickering, on and off, and just tonight noticed the correlation. When he has his Christmas lights on HE CUTS OFF THE POWER TO THE STREET LIGHT ACROSS THE ROAD FROM HIS HOUSE!
