The Hawthornes And Maxine Visit The Poulos House In Kill Devil Hills To See Their Annual Amazing Christmas Display.

We're still celebrating Christmas. After leaving Michael Coley's decorations in Manns Harbor, Mr. Hawthorne, Maxine, and I headed back home to Colington, stopping in Kill Devil Hills to see the Poulos' house. The Poulos' have been doing this for almost 30 years I think. And each year there's more. I believe they start decorating in August. Here's a recent article on Jim Poulos. And this:

Famous Christmas House on the Outer Banks

November 10th, 2006

If you watch the Today’s Show with Al Roker, you may have seen last year that Mr. and Mrs. Poulos of Ocean Acres Drive in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, won the National Christmas Decorating context. Mr. and Mrs. Poulos are expecting another visit, but this time it is the crew from HG TV, on Friday, November 10th broadcasting live from 3:30 p.m. well into the evening. The crew will focus on how the Poulos’s decorating year after year has brought such yuletide excitement to so many. They will be interviewing people on the Outer Banks that stop by that evening willing to express their appreciation and memories of this wonderful Christmas experience. We are very fortunate that Mr. and Mrs. Poulos provide all of us with a wonderful place to go to experience Christmas present and past. Their hard work and attention to detail is so very appreciated. If you have questions, call Jim and Ann Poulos at 441-1618.

Found here. We took Maxine there several years earlier and we all wanted to check it out again. The Poulos' Christmas Decorations have outdone decorations throughout the Nation. They gained national fame several years ago on The Today Show when they out-shone, out-blinked, out-twinkled, out-Noeled, out-Kitsched, out-lit, out-sparkled, out-did, out-you-name-it. They out-did it.
EGADS!!!! It's freakin' Bjorn! Shades of Sandra Lee!!
Imonna have nightmares now.
I left you wanting more. Didn't I?
Merry Christmas and Thank You, Pouloses!
