Christmas in the OC wins lights award

Maybe it’s to early to start thinking about Christmas — that is, unless you’re neighborhood residents Steven Hammond and Jamey Boozer, whose Christmas in the OC lights display last season was concocted in June and put together starting in October.

Hammond and Boozer already are planning next year’s display — "an even better show for 2009," Boozer says. "Seriously, we have been working on it all year! We cannot wait for the people of Oak Cliff to experience Christmas in the OC 2009!" The fact that their lights display recently was named by D-Light Designs Inc. as the winner of its 64 channels or less "D-Light the World" contest only fuels their fire.

They’ve created a website devoted to their efforts, with photos and videos of last year’s show, as well as a blog with tips on how to animate your own Christmas lights display.

    WOW!!! We drove by this home last evening and even in the drizzling rain it was spectacular. In that our viewing was unplanned, we didn’t have items for the SPCA bin so we donated money instead. This is a wonderful cause for all of us animal lovers, so please go by and drop off whatever you can for the pets who are at the shelter waiting for a good home. You can check the SPCA website for items on their wish list. I’m going back soon to show other friends and will also add to the bin at that time. There is a lot to see – lighted trees, candy canes, paraschute, skyline, etc., but the lights in the air which look like falling rain are alone worth the visit. These guys are extremely talented, not to mention very friedly, and THIS IS A MUST SEE!

    Pleae note that this is a street that dead ends so be prepared to turn around soon after the viewing.
