The art of decorating an evergreen tree in one's home is as well established as the tradition of giving presents. But in recent years another trend has started - that of decorating the outside of the house and garden with lights and assorted decorations and it is becoming more popular with every passing year. This small format picture-based book will showcase the best (or rather the worst) in excessive decorations from around the world - from the greatest number of lights to the tallest inflatables - a delight for all connoisseurs of bad taste. A small practical section at the front will offer advice on arranging your own decorations and hints on making your display the talk of the town.
Chuck Smith runs Planetchristmas.com as a hobby. The site's popularity has mushroomed in recent years and he is constantly sent images of decorations from Christmas light fans the world over.
