Rome Home Puts Griswold Christmas Lights to Shame
Move over Clark Griswold. Your Christmas lights display may have some competition. Rich and Michele Holeck of Rome have been decking out their home for the past 7 or 8 years but this year they've outdone themselves.
Michele says they usually start decorating after Halloween because "it's a long process. We are still putting out last minute decorations on our lawn or house."
The Holeck's love to deck their halls every year not only for their family but the community as well. "We have always been Christmas crazy. It brings out the kid in my husband and I."
25,000 lights were used to light up Clark Griswold's neighborhood in National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Michele says she's not sure the exact number of lights they used but it's in the thousands. Lets just hope it doesn't blind the neighbors.
Check out the elaborate display in Rome on 110 Fort Stanwix Park North.
