Good. We are glad this over. Keep it over and be done with. You have caused enough damage to our block (Kime Avenue) as it is. We don't need it anymore. Seriously. We live here too.

Are you kidding! Pay his Bill! if he can't afford it he shouldn't do it! I don't see any of the other christmas houses asking for money! They do just as much as he does,(BTW he hires a crew to put his lights up and most of the other houses di it all themselves!)

You have no idea what you are talking about, shut your trap and crawl back under the rock you rolled out from under.

He doesn't ask for money for himself, he asks for donations for a children's hospital. Going to the house has been a family tradition and I am so sorry that he and his family will not be able to do it again this year, but it will not stop me from donating anyway.

Hopefully the display will be back next year.

how much money did spadafora raise???? i betch-ya more than he reported to the charity!!!! you know, i'm sure if you drove past it and saw it once or twice every year that would be nice, but if you were to live on that block, I think it would be a living hell every night those light's were on!!!!The true meaning of Christmas has nothing to do with the Spadafora house....and when the 25th roles in....the holiday goes on like it has done every year before!!!!!

really people? christmas is for kids!all you bah-humbug people arent parents i'm guessing =) and what do kids like? christmas lights, my kids loved it.. so he didn't do it himself, and? that was the best house i've ever seen..and i haven't seen a house that does half of what he does (though there are some beautiful homes with lights) also i don't see any one else raising over a hundred thousands dollars for a "childrens" hospital. and for the kime block its 1 month out of the year get over it! i hope he does next year and for all the years to come!!

To be frank and honset, I don't appreciate those people who decorate every inch of their property with Christmas `decorations. Give me the subtle approach of white lights on the trees and bushes in front of the house, along the gutters if desired and candles in all the front windows. Nobody's neighbors will object to this treatment.
