This competition is so rigged! Please tell me how a house with just white lights around tree trunks wins against other houses with much much more "holiday spirit" and "class"? IDK But we enjoyed all the other thoughtout christmas displays.

what a waste of gasoline to go see the house that won. Have the judges lost their minds!!! It is embarassing and obvious that the better houses were overlooked. People come from naples every year to see our houses I suppose this is a good way to kill the tradition.
