Some people really love Christmas. And they share their holiday spirit and Christmas cheer by going all out this time of year.
Some of us can’t help it. We have to have the biggest, or the most, or the coolest thing out there. Some of us have to be different even for Christmas. Or maybe we’re “collectors” and we’ve got an attachment for Christmas flavored stuff.
Anyway, here are some stories and pictures of people who dare to be different this time of year. These folks sure are festive and spend a good amount of time and money to prep for their short time in the spotlight. To them, the trouble and the spending are no object. They will always have a budget for this sort of thing 🙂 .
Sharing The Christmas Cheer
#1 Tallest Christmas Tree On Private Property
This is a photo of a small part of a Christmas tree lodged in someone’s house. Greig Howe’s house, in fact, in Bournemouth, Dorset, England. Yes, this was done on purpose.
This family’s Christmas tree is sky’s the limit, giving the illusion of passing through all three floors of the family home. That’s a lot of work and decorative alterations to accommodate this monster for a few weeks of “wow”! Plus where the heck do you find a tree that huge? I guess in the same place that department stores do.
Greig paid the equivalent of $360.00 (around 250 pounds) for the tree, then covered it with 2,000 LED lights, 160 ornaments and a lovely tree-crowning star.
#2 Lady With 61 Christmas Trees
They have to be everywhere.
#3 Massive Santa Claus Collection
While women collect Christmas trees, how about this guy who collects Santa Claus (or Father Christmas, in some parts of the world) figurines and decorations?
If you’re big on Santa, you’ll have to check this site.
My Love of Christmas
As for me, well, I’ve gotten into the collectible spirit myself a little bit by building my own Christmas ornament collection, a hint of it you’ll see in this post on money, finance and fancy.
And as far as the holiday spirit goes, we can do pretty much anything to celebrate and share it, except maybe by making a statement with a collection of these ornaments (click this at your own risk)!
