Odd vehicle - any others?


Recommended Posts

I was looking out the window last night and saw a couple sitting in a Uhaul truck watching the light show. I guess they were taking a break after a hard day of moving. That got me to wondering - what is the most odd vehicle/conveyance that anyone has had pull up to watch their lights?

Last Saturday I had a taxi with a drunk inside who asked the driver to watch. Have also had the garbage truck guy ask me to turn on the lights at 6:30 am. A few nights ago a patrol car was out there all by herself for 30 minutes. Have had a fair number of 'walkers' this year with no vehicle at all who walk from nearby subdivisions.

I had an 18 wheeler out there a week or so ago. It was really strange because I'm in a neighborhood on a dead end street. The entire time I've lived here I don't think I've see an 18 wheeler on this road ever. I guess he found it on Facebook or Christmas light finder or who knows but he found it and drove that beast right up in front of the house and parked it. Lol

Last year I had a farm tractor pulling a hay wagon, loaded with kids who were caroling. They stopped and watched my lights and caroled to us!

I had a large tour bus full of people, then a motor home which appeared to be just parked but there were people in it watching the show. I had a cop car as well. A truck pulling an enclosed trailer full of High School Kids going to a Prom.

Last year I had a motorcycle policeman who was on duty but came by to be with his family while they watched the show.

I just remembered another unique vehicle. It was a large van full of old people from a local nursing home. They sat for about an hour and watched. I happened to come home while they were there and I went and spoke to the driver. I asked if I could get on the bus and talk to the elderly people. It was delightful. They were so kind, and said this was the highlight of their Christmas season. They all clapped and thanked me for the show. It was a great time for them, but even nicer for me.

Early in the season this year we had a large flat-bed tow truck watch for awhile. I was glad they came then since they were huge and there weren't too many other cars there at the time.

i had the Bellingham Mass Police Department, Firetrucks as well as even a Santa in a Sleigh being pulled by a truck on a trailer. Other then that, not many other strange cars.

Each year I get a 15 passanger van from one of the local elderly villages. This year we had a PPL truck (they were probably rubbing their hands together thinking about their bonus checks this year). Also had a pair of snowmobiles during the recent storm.

We have wineries nearby... so a bus full of (assuming intoxicated "wine enthusiasts") people enjoying the show.. they stayed the entire 50 minutes.

The pizza delivery guy came to my house twice... when they asked for cross streets.. I told them the house with animated lights.

However the best was the car load of "Happy Hour / Christmas party 40+ year-old women" They seemed to be in a very good mood, and they were BUMPING their stereo to the max... and "Wooooooo"ing constantly. They were a lot of fun!

I have a group home nearby that brings a van load of elderly people every weekend. There are a lot of groups that rent party buses and tour our neighborhood and always come buy to watch the show. One of my neighbors has an old Fire Truck that he rents to groups to tour the Christmas light every year. On the weekends he will bring 4 to 5 groups on a weekend nights.
