Glenn Versus Christmas Lights

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn has lived all over the country during the Christmas season, including New York City, but nothing compares to the lights he’s seeing people put up around Dallas. People go to unimaginable lengths (and cost) to deck their homes out for the holiday season — will Glenn be joining them?

“I got into the car, what was it, Saturday night. We went driving around looking at Christmas lights. Loved it. Loved it. I’m convinced that you could make a lot of money just getting into the Christmas light business if you live in cities like Dallas where you have, you know, wealthy neighborhoods where people apparently spend fortunes,” Glenn said.

“You should see the Christmas lights that people put up,” he said, “Some people are putting them out, I’m sure, themselves, but most of this stuff is professionally done.”

What was the cost for doing JUST the outside of the house? About $18,000!.

“I’m thinking about quitting my job and going into the Christmas decorating business because if you’re good at it and you live in, where there’s nice neighborhoods, there’s got to be big money in that,” Glenn said.

“This is the new funeral. They always talk about the funeral homes charge so much, people are in grief, they just do crazy things, they don’t care what they pay for the casket. That’s what the lighting is now,” Stu said.

“And as far as I’m concerned, neighbors, I hope you enjoy those nice little lights because you’re going to see them on every holiday. I’m getting my money’s worth. Ho, ho, ho. Happy Halloween. Ho, ho, ho. It’s Independence Day. Enjoy it.”

Pat and Stu also have spent a lot of money this year putting their lights on, but Jeffy had a different solution. This is the time of year he puts out “the Jewish candles” so everyone will leave him alone.

“It’s the time of the year Jeffy becomes Jewish,” Glenn said. “About the time his wife says, ‘Honey, we should put up the lights’ (he says) ‘I’m Jewish.’”

    The best anyone can do for Christmas is to live a life with Christ and God, to walk the walk and talk the talk.

    Live the life they wish to give each of us and exemplify and glorify them in turn with that life lived in service to them.

    Walk it.
    Talk it.
    Live it.
    Become it.

    What is the true purpose of Christmas lights? What use are they if their intent is to outdo the neighbor? I wonder how many of these people truly celebrate the birth of Jesus on that special day.

    Really you ask us to subscribe to the Blaze or 212 on Dish so they will be successful.  We are struggling to get by out here yet we pay for it to support you. It really hit me wrong that you ask us to subscribe then go out & spend $18,000 on lights. I love ya man but that did not sit right with us. I cancelled our Dish Channel 212

    I think that leaving the lights up all year round could be a real selling point to the house.  I mean, on the things good about the the house: three car garage, swimming pool and 10,000  lights that have been professionally installed attached to the outside trees.

     From what I remember hearing him say he did NOT spend that much.  He opted just to have just three trees out front decorated.

    Well, it’s better than living in your cesspool of California, New York, or Washington, lol.  Seriously, is that all you demotards could come up with?
