It’s time for the second annual Griswold award for Christmas lighting. To spare my children another miserable night of driving around in the cold and dark, I’m throwing this year’s nominations open.
Does the glow of your neighbour’s lights bring traffic to your block? Does it bring air traffic? Does the heat from your neighbour’s lights melt the snow on your roof?
If so, nominate them for the prize, a box of my old family movies and my mother-in-law’s Christmas cake from last year. (Rum not included; I wrung that out through cheesecloth).
Nominate someone (including yourself) in the comments below. Winners will be judged by some senseless criterion, probably how close they are to my house, and thus how likely I am to get there myself in the cold and dark.
