Nortons' Winter Wonderland - Burbank, CA

From building a Snowman out of Tumbleweeds back in 1965 to fashioning an Ice Rink out of Cotton Batting in 2005, for the last 40 odd years Dick Norton has been endeavoring to create a Winter Wonderland in sunny California. This year's layout showcases the many skills he's picked up along the way and promises to be an equal mix of hi-tech digital lights & old school analog props. Sure to delight are the steam-belching North Pole Express, Snoopy pursuing the Red Baron, and 4 animated amusements - the Merry-Go-Round, Ferris Wheel, Roller Coaster & Double Hammer ... Visitors ought to leave a little something in Santa's Curbside Mailbox to help pay for the juice!

Controllable Christmas Lights for Celiac Disease - Lafayette, CO

Hulk Clash! But it's the neighbors who've been Green with envy, ever since the Komarnitsky's wild display ( packed with over 20,000 lights & a cadre of Inflatables from the Island of Misfit Toys ) won the 2008 KFC Original Holiday Traditions Award, which included a year's supply of, well, fried chicken, but also a much needed gift of $1,000 to the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research! Come sundown on Thanksgiving Day, visitors to Komar.org can immerse themselves in all the jolly insanity, thanks to Alek's 3 live Webcams and 8 User-Controllable Switches ( 4 for Lights & 4 for Props ) ...
