I loved it. I been doing my own large Christmas display for some 15 years. I was too late to enter for this year, but plan to enter this year to be considered as a contestant for 2015.

Seriously whoever is running ABC’s programming department needs to be fired….why do these stupid shows keep getting renewed? Give 5 years and nothing will be on ABC, because there will be no ABC…..no wonder CBS is the most watched network, not being run by a bunch of clowns…

It was fun to watch, but hopefully this year they’ll give a chance (to win) to the families who are not super wealthy like last years winners!
