Dutton Christmas lights capture magic of holiday

The traditional outdoor Christmas showcase had its origin 35 years ago and has reappeared every year since.

“We start decorating around the first of November and have it up and going by Thanksgiving,” said Richard Dutton. “The lights are turned on at 5 p.m. every day of the week and are turned off at 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 p.m. Friday through Sunday.”

“Something new is added almost every year,” said Carolyn Dutton. “Richard placed lighted wreaths on all of the windows of the house and we added a rope of lights on the west side of our property.”

“We do it for the kids,” Richard Dutton pointed out. “We enjoy watching families driving by and looking. I suppose we’ll keep it up as long as we can afford the power bill.”

While the lighted display can easily be seen from Parker Road, the best viewing is from Timber Gap Lane.
