The garden is transformed into a magical Arctic village including the North Pole Inn (a dressed up tool shed), a train, a workshop, resident elves, snowmen and carolers.
Trading Spaces‘ Carter Oosterhouse is kicking off a new season of ABC’s The Great Christmas Light Fight with a home that’s completely over the top and lacking a single red or green bulb.
“This is the bluest Christmas I have ever seen. I’ve never seen so many blue lights in my life, Oosterhouse exclaims as Elvis’s “Blue Christmas” blares from speakers in the glowing yard.
Josie, 68, said: “Every year we buy new things and make it a bit different.
