SANDY — Some households across the nation go all out for Christmas with the bright flashing lights and coordinated music, and Utahns are no different. Some families have cars lined down the street every night coming to check out their display.

Welcome to the world of extreme holiday decorating. And these people aren't alone when it comes to their love of home holiday décor. For these families, the typical single strand of lights and a wreath on the door simply won't do.

One house displays lights that dance and blink to the beat of Gangnam style. This is Debbie Corbridge's house.

"I have rolled my eyes, I have to admit," Cornbridge said.

Corbridge's husband is the mastermind behind the computer program, light hanging, and the decorating, which takes complete priority during the holidays. His dream is to get his whole street to join in.

"It took about three days of about eight hours each, so about 25 hours to get this going," Cornbridge said.

And for people that don't like doing Christmas lights, there is always the option of inflatable decorations. One home in Sandy has inflatables on almost every inch of grass at this home.

And the neighbors love it.

"It makes it really festive," said neighbor, Ann Thomsen. "Feels like Christmas time more than ever."

Next-door neighbor, Ann Thomsen, even started to put a few blow-up decorations in her yard to join the holiday spirit.

If neither of those options tickle your fancy, families can always go the route of one family in Arizona that put up a big ditto sign pointing to their neighbor's house filled with decorations.

In case you want to drive by the house with all the inflatables, it is around 80th south, just below 13th east in Sandy.
