All lit up!

The couple living in this house just north of Eagan along Cedar Avenue has a famous tree. Why? Because everyone saw it during the holiday season on their commute home from work or on the way to the Mall of America or en route to Minneapolis! They told me that it's lit up with 41,300 lights on 150 strings of lights!

  6. At first I thought it might be the tree on your header. I seriously doubt that the owners did the trimming since enterprising companies now do it for homeowners. One of these years I'm going to follow the newspaper's list and visit some of these wonders. My granddaughter loves all of them, the tackier the better and some are really over the top! This one is tastefully done.
