Alan Aerts' elaborate Christmas displays outside his home in Monte Sereno, Calif. have attracted thousands of visitors, to the chagrin of some of his neighbors. Attempts to restrict the display led Mr. Aerts to roll out a giant statue of the Dr. Seuss character the Grinch this year. NPR's Melissa Block talks to Mr. Aerts.
