One of my family's favorite things during the Holidays is driving around and checking out everyone's Christmas spirit in their Christmas light displays.  I am sure I am not alone in this for no matter where I have lived there has always been the opportunity to enjoy the season this way, which has lead to a new Reality show on CBS called ' Christams Light Fights' in the 'Dancing With The Stars' time slot .  Families chosen from different states in the US compete for $50,000.

I have to say it was better than I expected.  These families were really over the top but they did it for their communities and for the love of the Lord and Christmas. As for the displays...Wow. Gaudy to the max but there was something wonderful and unique about how each family accomplished their Christmas light show.  Last night was the first installment and the winner was a retired NY Firefighter who answered the call on 9/11.

Think you got the Christmas Light Chops to compete.  They are already taking auditions for next year. Click Here
