The gaudy tackles display of the house in Neponsit should be seen for what it really is. There is no connection between the spirit of Christmas and overstated Christmas lights with a picture of the owner and his family prominently displayed near a donation box. Calling attention to the "charitable" work you are doing is totally at odds with the Christmas spirit of giving. Does the owner get a tax deduction for his expenses incurred in buying the expensive junk? Who gets the deduction for the money in the donation box? What about the neighborhood? How do the neighbors like the parade of cars and people? Isn't this just a way for an individual to exercise his feelings of grandeur while hiding behind a worthy cause as justification?
