When the topic of holiday lighting comes up, it’s hard for me not to think of Clark Griswold from the movie National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Clark, played by Chevy Chase, had a lighting style all his own – a style you and I might sum up into one word, excessive.
In one scene from the film, Clark’s asked if his house is on fire. He responds, “No, Bethany; those are Christmas lights.”
There’s a good chance your neighborhood has endured a Griswold house in the last 20 years or so. But in my experience, no one wants their house to look like it’s on fire. Fortunately for us, outdoor holiday lighting styles today are a bit more refined and better designed.
