Summary
A wry, understated and terrifically funny look at the Townsends, a suburban Atlanta family who, every holiday season, transformed their Stone Mountain area brick ranch house into a meteoric blaze of Christmas lights. Known as both 'the Christmas House' and the 'the Elvis House, ' the Townsend's home was visited yearly by vast numbers of people, many of whom viewed a trip to the land of a thousand tchotchkes as an annual pilgrimage
