America's Weirdest Holiday Light Displays

From a Sacred Cactus and the Blue Birds of Happiness to fruit salad Jesus, Slate has an awesome slideshow featuring Christmas light displays from around the country. I'm particularly shocked at how many folks used their displays to make some sort of asinine statement (really? an oil derrick?), but they're all interesting.

I think my favorite, despite its message of snotty atheism, is the Flying Spaghetti Monster, picture above.

  1. i witnessed the flying spaghetti monster the other night...the whole street was lit up and each house had a light theme. my favorite was the 'recession' display complete with monopoly board sidewalk {community chest: $750b} and a golden parachute stuck in a tree.
