No matter what the holiday, we always love getting extra festive. It's not like we need an excuse to wear awful Christmas sweaters or take part in a harmless snowman prank, but doing that stuff during the season makes us look a little less crazy. The season also provides the perfect excuse to go way overboard in the decorating department.

See, this is really the only time of year it's socially acceptable to be that super annoying neighbor with the blinding light show on your front lawn. We're talking about those acres of rainbow lights, that battery-operated Santa sleigh and the 10 blow-up snowmen that sing 'Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree' over and over. It's all in the name of Christmas cheer, people.

Turns out tons of people have taken to Twitter and Instagram to document these ridiculously awesome displays of festivity, so we've scoped out 17 houses who are totally decked out for Christmas. Check 'em out below:
