Open Thread - Star Wars Christmas Lights!

By a guy with a house and a big electric bill.

The guy who put these up sounds like one of those Pope Francis Christians, too: Wapo:

Its creator, Tom BetGeorge, seems like a nice guy. He’s a music teacher. He uses the displays to raise some money for charity, because, he told Yahoo News: “I’m a Christian. The Bible references taking care of the poor more than anything else…I don’t think that’s an analogy. I think that’s literal.”

He says his neighbors are fine with the display, which takes some serious goodwill built up over the rest of the year. (“The neighbors are very supportive especially since I use the display to raise money for the poor and homeless through my church,” he wrote on YouTube.)
