"Oh. My. God."

Robin wasn't even all the way out of the car before she stood gaping and stunned at the holiday light display covering what seemed like every square inch of the front of the Craftsman.

Strands not only ran all over the house, but they were festooned all over the trees and formed geometric patterns on the lawn. The garage was the only part left untouched, possibly as a concession to Charlie's work in there or the simple fact that it was mostly obscured from view by the megawatt glow from the house.

"Yeah," Don said, joining her. "It's worse than I thought."

"How? Why?" Robin sputtered, searching for words. "Who does this kind of thing?"

"Apparently Amita really likes designing holiday light shows run by computer program."

"But Alan! How can he stand this being done to his house?"

"It's not his house anymore," Don said, shrugging as he closed her car door for her and pressed the button to lock up the SUV.

Robin shook her head in dismay.

"They could at least show a little restraint!"

Don chuckled.

"I saw videos of the displays Amita did both years in England. Trust me: this is her showing restraint."
