Is Christmas Bigger in Texas?

I live in New Mexico  about 8 miles from the Texas border,   so I am over in Texas quite a bit.     We drove over yesterday to do a little Christmas shopping and look at the beautiful homes all decked out for the holidays.     The old saying "everything's bigger in Texas" may be true!

Before I show you a few of the homes decorated for Christmas,   I wanted to share this big home.    The new construction in Lubbock Texas is business's and BIG homes.    

Not only is the home big,   there is a big building out back.      Look in the right corner ......

Here it is from the back......I wonder what they use it for!

Here is the same home from the back side.    

Now for some decorated homes.....

I wanted to show you one more  house being constructed.   It is located right  next door to the first one you saw......

I guess things are bigger in Texas!
Merry Christmas !


  1. It's so much fun riding around and looking at Christmas lights...looks like there are a lot of Grand Homes in your area.

  2. I love the american houses a lot! Thank you very much for sharing these wonderful houses.

  3. Toooo big for me. LOL. I do love seeing them decorated. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  4. WOW! Nothing like driving around and looking at beautiful Christmas lights. It's a yearly ritual with all of the little ones. Always love the oohs and aahs.


  5. The castle must be in the oil,I feel sorry for the one that has clean.
    The lights are nice

  6. Never would I want a house this size if I had all the money.

  7. Way too big for me. Those are ridiculous! I do love the lights though.

  8. Um you would need to get a mini-cooper to ride around INSIDE those homes...the old story of getting lost in your own house...Downton Abbey anyone. Crazy! Thanks for the tour,Sandi

  9. Penny,
    The decorations are beautiful and seem to be professionally done. Those are not homes but look almost like municipal buildings!! Definitely way to big and a bit gaudy for me!!

  10. It is funny that you refer to the old saying "everything's bigger in Texas. Here across the Atlantic we often say something like this - but with another word instead of Texas: America!

  11. Amazing houses, so big and beautiful. I think that in some places people are more exited about Christmas than on other so is completely possible decoration in Texas to be bigger :)

    Happy holidays,

  12. Wow talk about big!! I can just imagine filling up the rooms with craft Thanks for sharing all the pretty blingy pictures with the lights. Those are always fun to see.

  13. Wow! I bet you like to decorate one of those babies Ha!

  14. Those are some humongous homes!! I would get lost in them!

  15. Often my first thought is how do they keep it clean? And do they let their teens have friends over? Guessing they can afford cleaning services...haha. Love Christmas lights on home big and small! Merry Christmas, Linda

  16. Wow those houses are amazing, I wonder what business they are in... pretty displays too!

  17. Oh my goodness, those houses are amazing! I don't even know where I'd begin to decorate anything that big! Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday!

  18. I really enjoyed this post, I love learning about different states.

  19. That was fun Penny!
    Merry Christmas and thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!

  20. i think those things are ridiculous. thanks for sharing them, it's interesting to see, but i think bigger is not always better. i can't imagine what that costs somewhere else!


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
