Canada’s Most Outrageous Holiday Home Found in Georgetown, Ontario
Lambert, who has been adding to his display for nearly 15 years, credits his family, friends and especially his neighbours for the success of his annual light show. In 2009, a money donation box erected in front of the house raised nearly $8,000 for the Georgetown hospital foundation.
“If we didn’t have understanding and supportive neighbours, our annual light display wouldn’t be possible,” said Lambert. “They see how happy it makes people and they know it’s become an important fundraiser for our community hospital.”
During the two-week search, Canadians from coast to coast nominated homes they felt worthy of recognition. Lambert’s home was chosen from a list of eight finalists. Runners-up include Maisie’s Christmas House in Edmonton, Alberta and the home of Cynthia and Ron Demers in Milton, Ontario which boasts 31 elaborately decorated Christmas trees.
Lambert’s award includes $1,000 worth of Christmas movie memorabilia donated by RetroFestive.ca, including a life-size leg lamp inspired by the movie A Christmas Story and a set of Clark Griswold moose mugs, like the ones seen in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
“We want to celebrate people across Canada who decorate extraordinarily for the love of Christmas and for the enjoyment of their family, friends and neighbours—people who put fun into the season,” says Tyler Schwartz, owner of RetroFestive.ca. “Outrageous holiday home decorators deserve recognition and appreciation for delighting millions of Canadians from coast to coast.”
The Lambert family is developing a new website to showcase their house: http://www.LambertsLights.com
