In Scottsdale, Ariz., some homeowners compensate for a lack of snow at Christmas time with elaborate light displays. At times the decorations can get a little out of hand. One such scene is at 29-year-old Chris Birkett's house, where the display features more than 150,000 light bulbs and elaborate musical accompaniment. Some neighbors find it a major nuisance.
