Grizwoldian Idaho

Bethany: Is your house on fire, Clark?
Clark: No, Aunt Bethany, those are the Christmas lights.
From the movie, “Christmas Vacation”

Few can ever achieve Griswoldian status in the world of Christmas lighting, but Chevy Chase’s Clark Griswold from the 1989 movie “Christmas Vacation” likely would never have thought to time his lights to music being broadcast on FM radio.

Yet, that’s what two homeowners in Iona and one in Idaho Falls have been doing for years now, setting a standard hard to match. They are two of the 10 stops we recommend on a tour of eastern Idaho Christmas lights for 2010.

The nice lady behind one o the Iona exhibits says they use 130,000 lights and 4½ miles of extension cords. Holy cow.
