I laughed out loud over your reference to “that guy”!

There used to be “that guy” in a subdivision near ours that started putting lights and decorations out late October / beginning of November. When he finished everything and hit the switch it was spectacular. My wife and I used to drive through that neighborhood just to see his outside lights and display. Over a period of several years; every neighbor within a block of this guy, either way, tried to “up their game” and come up with something that approached the magnificence of “that guys” outside display.

The fellow sold his house and moved last year and I have no doubt a collective sigh of relief went up from the entire neighborhood. 😉

The there are stories of such elaborate lighting that the house would attract so many "sightseers" the neighbors would protest. Then the police and, eventually, the courts would get involved. Usually a wealthy family that contracted for the lighting.
