Come see our 2011 Holiday Display!

Izo the Snowman It has been a busy couple of days for the Tripp Family Christmas Lights. We had our opening night on Friday, November 25th and it was great! We had over 500 people to walk through the yard to see all the lights! On Saturday, we had a guest appearance from Izo the Snowman and Joey did a live interview on 13WMAZ Weekend Morning Show. You can check out the interview at You can also checkout the promotional Eastman-Dodge Chamber of Commerce made for the Tripp Family Christmas Lights with Izo.

Izo will be making more appearances every night until November 30th between the hours of 7pm to 9pm. Santa Claus will be making his first appearance on December 3rd. For more information about events and appearances check out our calendar.

2011 Holiday Season is almost here!

We are getting ready for the 2011 Holiday Season! The 2011 Calendar is online and ready for your viewing pleasure. Feel free to download and share our calendar with your family and friends.

Sadly, we have unfortunate news, we will not be able to provide Santa Claus pictures this year because we do not have the proper equipment. (Please note: Santa will still make appearances but visitors will have to bring their own camera) For the past couple of years we have borrowed the camera equipment used to take the pictures. We are very thankful for the opportunity to provide visitors with free pictures with Santa Claus but this year we are unable to provide this service.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the Christmas Lights please do not hesitate to contact us.

Featured on Yahoo!

Yahoo! Home Page Feature
The Tripp Family Christmas Lights is currently featured on Yahoo’s Home page in the Extreme Holiday Decorations editorial photo gallery. The gallery used a photo of the lights taken in 2007 which showed the house from a side view.

Quote Joey Tripp: “We discovered this by chance because of my phone. A little after 9pm my phone started buzzing like crazy because I was getting several email notifications. I was unaware of why I was getting so many emails but when I checked they were all coming from the website, the site we host our photos on. When I went to Flickr I saw several comments on one particular photo. I still didn’t know why that one photo was getting so much traffic. After several hours of searching I went to and saw that an Extreme Holiday Decorations gallery was being featured on Yahoo!’s home page. I clicked the link and found the source of all the traffic.”

Flickr Photo Stats and Information Update 12/21/2010: As of 2:30 AM, the photo has received 30,220 view and the count is growing by the minute.

Update 12/24/2010: Yahoo is no longer displaying the Extreme Holiday Decorations gallery on the home page. It was on the home page on December 20, 21, and 22. However, the gallery is still available and, at the moment of this update, it has 2,097,426 views and 491 comments. We acquired 72,853 views, 23 comments, and 11 people marking the picture as their favorite as the result of people clicking the Tripp Family Christmas Lights photo in the Yahoo gallery.

Farming Country

Santa's Tractor The Tripp Family Christmas Lights is located in farming country and tonight the scents of a farm were abundant in the air. Please forgive us about the putrid smell that filled the air tonight. A local farmer placed fertilizer in the field across from our homestead. While we had no control we are truly sorry and hope that it did not cause your visit to be unpleasant. Thank you for visiting and come back soon!
