I think that a part of what makes decorating our house so much fun for me and SOB is pondering what the neighbors think about it. When we first started with the insanity decorations, we were back in Philly in an orthodox Jewish neighborhood. Luckily, someone there was kind enough to tell us what they thought. Then we moved to WV, to a nice, quiet, tasteful community. Until we came along!
Now we are here in the south hills of Pittsburgh. Our neighborhood has a reputation for being a little snobby, which can be daunting at times. However, there are enough people here who don't take themselves too seriously, and that more than makes up for the snobbery. Our house in located on a very visible intersection, and so we knew we had to do it up right this year, especially since we didn't do so much last year. It was done in stages over three separate weekends, but it is done! And it is a delightful smorgasbord of tacky insanity.
The kids love it. And guess what? So do the adults!
