Website Improvements

Posted by Tacky Holly - December 18th, 2013

Last year I added the GREEN BACKGROUNDS to indicate whether a display is verified Lit or On.
Previously, you needed to check the Blog to see which were On.

This year I have added an indicator Animated to Music and station information for Animated Light displays.
This information is also included on the PRINT VERSION page.

For the Maryland displays, in addition to the new animation indication, I have added a PRINT THIS LIST button on the main page.

Hope this helps for those looking for animated light displays.

2013 Notoriety

Posted by Tacky Holly - December 14th, 2013

Dec. 03, 2013 Conducted telephone interview resulting in an article about the site in Northern Virginia Magazine-Online. Tim Regan writes a well researched article about the site. Thank you, Tim!

Light Status - Dec. 14, 2013

Posted by Tacky Holly - December 14th, 2013

I believe most of the displays are On.
There are a few I haven’t visited or heard from any Light Elves (you know who you are) if they are On.
Any display on the site without a green background means I don’t know the status for this display.
If you’re out and about and see one of these, drop me a message at and let me know so I can update the site.
I want to send out a big THANKS to all the Light Elves that have let me know the status of displays.
I could never get the sight up to date, without you all! THANK YOU!

Last night I visited National Harbor for the Friday 7pm fireworks show. AWESOME.
Then stayed until 8pm for the fountain show and snow. Did a little shopping in between.
Afterwards I got at hot donut at Krispy Kreme and visited #13 Fairview and finished up at #14 Colllingwood. I was one tired puppy when I got home…

I’ve got my company Christmas party tonight so won’t make it out to look at lights.
Hoping for good weather tomorrow night to get out for the lights.
HOWEVER, if it’s raining, many of the big display are OFF, so don’t bother….

Light Status Dec. 12, 2013

Posted by Tacky Holly - December 12th, 2013

Just got home from viewing. Here’s the status…
In Virginia, we’ve lost a couple:

  • #40 Gage has moved and is now living at the family home, #13 Fairview. They are still putting up decorations and hope to be finished the middle of next week.
  • #38 -1925 Leonard Rd, Falls Church is gone for good. House is empty.
  • #37-1752 Pimmit Dr, Falls Church has nothing up.
  • #30-5604 Hereford Court, Alexandria told me this is his LAST YEAR decorating big.
  • #50-111 W Church Rd, Sterling will be dark this year but planning on returning next year

A few of the Honorable Mentions are not on and have been removed for now:

  • HM-Y: 14549B Lock Drive, Centreville is OFF for this year.
  • HM-G: 2345 Sandburg St, Dunn Loring has nothing up.
  • HM-CC: Melville, Centreville has moved to Woodbridge.

In Maryland:

  • #6-5034 Durham Rd E, Columbia had nothing up on Dec. 7.
  • 1714 Spring Green Ave, Crofton is another son of #13 and decorates.

The weather has been a big problem for many decorators.
And remember, many big displays are OFF when it rains or is too windy.
And, Please, Please, Please stay out of the displays! (#1 Pet Peeve of Owners)
I’m still making the rounds so, more to come….

Here Comes Christmas 2013

Posted by Tacky Holly - October 16th, 2013

It’s already midway through October and Christmas season is on the horizon.

I have taken the time to update the Lighted Boats and Commercial Light Shows pages of the site for 2013.

I’m starting to make plans for the season.
I want to do the Richmond Tacky House Tour and visit Oglebay.
If others are interested, perhaps we could go as a group?
Email ( if you’re interested and specify the best dates for you to go.
Serious inquires only…
