Every town has at least one: a resident who loves Christmas so much that he'll (yep, it's usually a he) stop at nothing -- not even astronomical electric bills -- to have the most blinged-out Christmas display in the neighborhood. Check out these crazy Christmas houses, and then send us pics of the wildly decorated holiday homes in your town!

    This family wasn't content with just decorating the house so they decided to go for the lawn, too.

    These guys didn't stop with lights. Oh no, they went on to include a holiday-themed projection in their Christmas house madness.
