Just wanted to start a new thread about Christmas Displays in the South Jersey area.... Our house is located in Marlton right off of Rt 73; King Ave...

We are shooting for 70,000 lights this year with a big roof display this year to knock your socks off. In addition to 13 inflateables, animated animals, a music/light synchronizer, we added a snow making snowman for some realistic Holiday magic... Our lights will be on starting on Thanksgiving and running through New Years Day. They turn on at 5pm and go off at 10pm, later as Christmas gets near. Last year we experienced a lot of people stopping and admiring the lights, and that was with 60,000 lights. This year we are going over the top (again..). Please make sure you stop by and walk along the sidewalk not only to take in all of the lights but also to enjoy the light and music show.... I had the roof on the other night and it was awesome!!!

Looking forward to seeing you all!!! Keep the thread going with other displays that you know of in South Jersey, would love to pass them all on....

Marlton is to far of a drive for me to look at lights. Could you post a few pictures?

Default Father Christmas - Pics Available to view...

I was finally able to post a couple of pics on a website called:

TackyLightTour.com

Its a website I found that lists houses from across the country and world...
Do a search by state or zip code; mine is 08053, Marlton....
I have a couple of pics of the house from the 2006 season, which will be nothing to what is going on for this 2007 season. If you could please vote for my house also under the Awards section. I have it listed under the "Griswold Award"... It would be greatly appreciated. If you stop by the house this coming season, let us know you saw it on this web site or the TackyLightTour website.... Thanks for your interest in seeing the house...
Remember, you can vote every 24 hours!!...

Thanks and have a bright Christmas season....

LOL - while reading the OP's post, I had a mental image of Chevy Chase up on the roof trying to get those darned light strands on, and also how everyone gathered around the house just staring (and pretty much being blinded, too)
