Some folks find it hard not to go overboard at Christmas time. This is one of those fellows:
When UK-based electrician (go figure) Alex Goodhind found that he couldn’t make a cup of tea when his massive Christmas display was turned on, he decided to shell out £700 ($1385) to install a factory-strength 145-amp power line to his home. The display took five weeks to put together, and it will run him about $1000 in additional electricity costs over the course of three weeks.
