45 People Who Won Christmas With Their Epic Holiday Lighting

45 people who won Christmas with their epic decorations

One of the best things about Christmas is the traditions. According to “Christmas in America” by Antonia Felix, German Christian families started bringing trees into their homes as a symbol of the Christ child.

This was apparently borrowed from a pagan yule tradition that used an evergreen tree to symbolize the return of the light of sun and days growing longer after the winter solstice, as well as the renewal and continuance of life, even in dark times.

German Christians decorated their trees with paper flowers, bright foil, apples, sweets, and candles. The candles represented Christ being the light of the world. Hanging Christmas lights and decorating your home for the holidays evolved from that early tradition.

It might be easy to forget the reason for the season when you look at modern Christmas light displays, but if you think about Christ giving his life for the love and salvation of humanity it’s actually not that far off.

People who decorate their homes with elaborate displays do it out of love.

It costs them money, time, and a lot of hard work. But they do it out of love for spreading the Christmas spirit and making their families and neighbors happy.

The Garabedian House a.k.a. The Bronx Christmas House

The Garabedian family has been decorating this famous Christmas House since 1974.

“Something special happened to the family on Christmas Eve in 1973… This is our way of showing thanks to the Lord for what he did for us,” Mr. Garabedian was reported to have said, according to The Gothamist.

 The Garabedian House located in Bronx, NY  also known as The Bronx Christmas House was featured in Mariah Carey’s video for “All I Want for Christmas Is You when the house was decorated with smaller dolls. The decorations have changed over the years to include exquisite lifesize dolls.

The “Bronx Christmas House” video by Jose Rivera 2013

The Garabedian house, also known as “The Christmas House” in the Bronx, brings a curious crowd to the corner of Pelham Parkway North and Westervelt Avenue every December. The pink house is a vision off-season as well, but when the owners flip the switch around Thanksgiving its a full on hallucination of twirling mannequins and blaring music.
