Yes it’s that time of year and the houseblingers are draining the National Grid again. I’ve never quite understood it myself, all that money on flashing Santas and red noses, not to mention the running costs, and they’re sat inside the house where they can’t see them.
It also means the seasonal return of the Houseblinger Blog and website from where I lifted the video above. It’s genuine according to Snopes, the 2004 Light-o-Rama created by Carson Williams of Mason, Ohio and was made up of 16,000 lights. People driving past the house were told to tune into a low power FM station to hear the accompanying music. If you fancy having a go, please feel free to follow the instructions.
