A place to check out some of the Christmas
lights in Crosby
Crosby Township is a
quiet little community nestled in a little corner of Southwestern Ohio.
Many of the residents here enjoy decorating their homes for the Christmas
season for all to see.
I will always remember my
days as a kid in the late 50's/early 60's, when we would go for a ride to check
out the lights. The Rack brothers on North Bend Road in Monfort Heights
were always the best. They
lived down the road from each other and it always looked as though they were
competing with each other. Of course there were many others, but I always wanted
to compete with those guys. They seemed to set the bar, and they always
set it high.
Now it's our turn! My
wife and I want to pass it on. Since we have been doing this for the last
twenty years it has always been a joy to see the cars slowing down to get a
look. For some reason, no matter what the weather is like, It seems you
always have to put the car windows down to get a better look. That is when
you can hears the squeels of delight from the young and old alike. That is
when you know you did a good thing. That is when you relive your
We enjoy putting them up as
much as others enjoy seeing them. We will
continue to do so as long as
we possibly can.

This year we are way behind
due to other commitments. I hate that! We have just over
24,000 lights glimmering for all to see.
We aren't ready to stop yet but we are close. The
rainy weather the last couple of days slowed us down and
with Christmas closing in fast I doubt we will get the
36,000 we had in the past.
We will keep at it and get as close to that as we can.
The visitors are counting on us.
One of our Cubs comes in
handy transporting some of the many decorations
to their location to be set up.
pine tree finally got too big to decorate
from the ground. With the help of the
old Farmall "H" and the bucket lift I got
those lights right to the top.
Anyone out looking at lights likes too see
new ideas and different types of displays. Being creative
makes a difference in a display.
Some Assembly Required
Wow, How many times have we seen that
statement on product packaging! A good display is no
I always felt there was
something missing on the Nativity scene. This year I
found some old split rail fence that had the posts rotted
off at ground level. I drove standard posts in the
ground and tied the split rail post to those then slit the
rails in. it gave the display a new dimension and the
fence will be easy to remove and store for next year.
Want to see the whole display but you can't
get here? Not to worry, the entire scene has
been recorded and set to music! The video is from a
few years ago so some things have changed but you will get a
good idea of how it looks.
With so many lights, how do we ever keep count?
