Ben Pfeiffer ofNew Braunfels, Texas submitted the following three pics.
Like the melting pot that America is, this particular house has everything you can buy from the Walmart Christmas section and then some more. Not to be outdone by the neighbors, this house comes complete with a ultra creepy oversized Spongebob sneaking through the kid's bedroom window. What this has to do with Christmas decorations I don't know but for some reason it makes this house one of the best we saw all night.
You can barely makeout a house behind all the gigantic animatronic inflatable characters carelessly swoon around the yard. We immediately wanted to string some extra Christmas lights to help balance out the montage of characters. A few more inflatable animals hanging from the trees and this house would be a ride at Disney. Despite the chaos of characters we had the most fun at this house. The deer in the basketball net in addition to the palm trees really gave us a laugh. The neighbors tell us they decorate this much for every holiday.
Probably our favorite of the night. What house with Christmas decorations is complete without your very own broken down early 90's Chrysler in the driveway? This would make the Griswolds proud. We counted 8 inflatable characters in the yard and also a bit better organized than the last house. Our end of the night diamond in the rough.
Angela Root of Orlando sent us these pics of a house with a Florida Gators' theme. (As a Seminoles fan, I consider this a tacky choice.) This picture was taken in an area of Orlando called Belle Isle. Its one of my most favorite areas in Orlando, it has some of the most beautiful houses and on either side of the road there is a lake hence being called "isle." I'd like to think I deserve this gift card because I took a picture of a house that goes against the norm when it comes to Christmas lights. Granted I know the mission was to photograph a house with tacky lighting, I chose to photograph the house with a theme being the University of Florida. This house isn't only illuminated in blue and orange, they have also gone the extra by also having Tebow's jersey number illuminated in the yard, football players throwing balls, gators opening and closing their mouths, and their SUVS all decked out in gator paraphernalia. This is my plea, hope you buy it.
Drew Anema of Merritt Island took these two pics.
I got ya some Griswalds here. Here are two Merritt Island examples.The first of which should be a winner because Im taking pictures in a car with Iowa tags in Florida like a hillbilly when the neighbor starts walking up to us to find out what in the world we are doing. We hopped in the car and burned out like we're the wet bandits casing the joint.
The second of the pictures should win because the lights are on the roof (like christmas vacation) and the sheer size of the house...plus the fact it has a stone castle like turret!
Vote for your favorite house, and we'll announce a winner at five. Keep sending us your photos for a chance at a $50 Itunes gift card and a $100 Visa gift card.
