Without the chutzpah of certain overly enthusiastic holiday decorators—and their mind-numbing, electricity-draining, neighbor-aggravating light shows—the world would, quite literally, be a much darker place. The latest in over-the-top holiday trimmings? This slaughterhouse-style pen holding hostage dozens—dozens!—of glowing, old-timey Santa statues. As one Huffington post commenter put it, this is what happens "when hoarding, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and Christmas spirit collide." The best part? This ostentatious and just plain weird Santa army is located in the town of Normal, Ill.
