Tis the season to be luminously spankylighty all over the world. Xmas lights are my favorite thing about the holidays. Heck, last year I even bought —and reviewed—a Philips Livingcolors Lamp to illuminate our tree with multicolor goodness, much to Addy's glowing desperation. But hey, I can't help but to get all teary with all this heartwarming twinkling stars. In Tokyo, however, they go from sparkling lights to sensory overloading LED mayhem, like these photos show.

Do you have examples of crazy holidays lightning in your city or town? Any neighbour spending the budget of some African state in animated light Santas and elves from hell? Send them here. [Bouncing Red]
